As I reflect on the past year, I am proud to be part of a new generation of leaders across all campuses at Indiana University—leaders who continue to guide us through the new world of work in which innovation, inclusivity, and resourcefulness are both essential and prioritized. All we’ve endured as a global community has made IU more resilient, and it’s exciting that IU alumni are making a difference not only close to home, but in every corner of the world.
During these recent times of uncertainty, the IU Alumni Association, like many organizations, sought and found strategies that will keep us relevant now and in the future. Our mission to activate and support our global alumni network remains ever true, and I am honored to showcase within these pages the inspiring work we have undertaken together.
In this report, you will read about progress and accomplishments across a wide array of engagement opportunities, vibrant communities, and proud recognition programs. You will see that our financial footing is solid. And you will learn that we are focused on initiatives that welcome and include all.
In everything we do, we want you to know that you are welcome here.
As we move forward with our mission, we will, as always, listen to our alumni. As their wants and needs evolve, we will adapt our offerings—providing them with meaningful ways to stay connected with the IUAA and IU for a lifetime.
I am grateful and humbled to be a leader in IU’s effort to engage alumni. Thank you for your interest and investment in the IU Alumni Association.
For the Glory of IU,
—Patricia Riveire Stumpf, MS’07
