Neal-Marshall Alumni Club

Welcome to the Neal-Marshall Alumni Club!

The Neal-Marshall Alumni Club was founded in 1980 to meet the needs of IU African-American alumni and to increase their participation in local and national IU alumni groups. The club is named for the first African-American male and female graduates of Indiana University: Marcellus Neal, BA 1895, and Frances Marshall, BA 1919.

We are all about IU and you.

Membership in the Neal-Marshall Alumni Club is open to all African-American IU alumni who want to stay connected and help promote an awareness of the history, traditions, and legacy of African Americans at IU. We desire to be the foremost African-American alumni association in the nation; one that not only strengthens and unifies our community but makes a positive, indelible impact on the world.

Stay connected

Connect with other African-American alumni, faculty, staff, and students who share your love of IU. Help us boost IU pride, volunteerism, and engagement within the African-American community on all eight campuses. To keep you connected, we publish periodic newsletters that are sent to all Neal-Marshall alumni. If you'd like to join the newsletter mailing list, please contact Leah McRath-Hinton at
