Become an alumni volunteer

Welcome! If you’re here, that means you love IU as much as we do. We want to help you find a place where you can make a difference. Volunteering for Indiana University and the IUAA opens the door to a world of possibilities, and we’re excited to get to know you!

The IU Alumni Association is committed to ensuring that we are an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming community where discrimination of any kind is not tolerated. In 2020, we recommitted ourselves to this effort and are looking for volunteers who believe and support these efforts. Learn more about our commitment to all alumni and all communities.

Who do alumni volunteers directly support?

The IUAA and its volunteers support nearly 775,000 alumni across the globe. We rely on alumni volunteers to engage with alumni either as individual volunteers or in our affinity, affiliate, academic/campus-based, and geographic-based communities, as well as our global online community, the Virtual Alumni Network.

These groups share a common bond of self-identity or experience. For example, the IUAA supports the Asian Alumni Association, as well as the IU Auditorium Alumni Association—a community of alums who worked at the auditorium as students.

Academic/campus-based communities organize around the academic school or regional campus through which they earned their degree. For example, The Media School Alumni Association, the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology Alumni Association, or the IU South Bend Alumni Association.

Referred to as “chapters,” these volunteer-led communities are defined by where alumni live. The IUAA supports local chapters all over the world.

Volunteer for your school or campus

When you get involved as a volunteer for your school or campus, you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of students and your fellow alumni. The best alumni networks are fueled by passionate and committed alumni, like you.

Each school/campus offers multiple opportunities to get involved. On the volunteer profile form, select the school or campus you’re interested in supporting and an alumni relations staff person will contact you to share volunteer opportunities.
