Chicago, Illinois Chapter

Join us in Chicago

Meet fellow alumni and connect with IU through the Chicago Chapter of the IU Alumni Association—your local IU family.

A great way to get involved is to attend one of our upcoming events. We aim for variety. You could, for instance, cheer on IU at a game-watch, take part in one of our social networking and professional-enrichment events, join a book club, or lend a hand at one of our service projects.

Follow us on Facebook for the latest chapter events, activities, and news.

The Alumni in Chicago Innovating in Food event will bring together IU founders and alumni to discuss the future of food and why Chicago is the nation's food manufacturing capital. The panel will be followed by refreshments and networking.
