It started with a fire. Our alumni keep that fire burning.
In 1854 a midnight blaze destroyed a fledgling frontier college. Alumni banded together to rebuild what would become Indiana University. And alumni have kept IU strong throughout its history—from rebuilding after the devastating 1854 fire to leading efforts to grow the university, extend its reach, and provide educational opportunities for the best and brightest students.
The IU Alumni Association started with a fire. Today, the IU Alumni Association brings more than 580,000 IU graduates together to support one another and Indiana University throughout their lives. The IUAA activates IU’s powerful global network through live events, webinars, scholarship programs, and seriously fun traditions. Our members make it possible for us to:
- Be your voice in issues that affect IU’s future.
- Connect you to volunteer projects and community outreach activities.
- Be your loyal companion as you move forward in your career, put down roots, or explore the world.
IUAA membership makes all of us stronger. IUAA serves every IU alum—but it’s our loyal and supportive members who make our programs and services possible. If you’re already a member, thanks. If you’re not, find out how to become one today.
Finally, if you have an idea for how we can do more to serve IU alums, talk to us. We’d love to hear from you.
