ALUMNI RELATIONS (UA-ALUM-IUBLA)
The Indiana University Alumni Association's mission is to activate and support the global alumni network of more than 750,000 IU graduates - encouraging alumni to grow a lifelong connection with Indiana University, and inspiring their ongoing generosity toward each other and the university.
As we pursue our mission, a core set of values guides our approach:
Collaboration | We work together to achieve common goals.
Commitment | We serve each other, our alumni and the university with professionalism and integrity.
Inclusion | We work to create an inclusive culture that is committed to diversity, belonging, and equity.
Pride | We share and celebrate the best of the past, present, and future of IU.
As we undertake our mission of activating and supporting the global alumni network, we have three priorities that guide our work. Each of these priorities is supported by strategies that direct our efforts in the years to come.
Cultivate belonging | To ensure a welcoming, equitable, diverse, and inclusive community, we will challenge discrimination and our inherent biases.
Deepen alumni loyalty | To build the alumni community, we will learn how alumni identify with IU and each other, and then offer relevant experiences that encourage stronger commitment.
Strengthen alumni relations across IU | We will collaborate with IU stakeholders and support efforts to engage more deeply with their alumni audiences.
The IUAA activates IU's powerful global network through live and virtual events, volunteer opportunities, scholarship programs, compelling IU content, and seriously fun traditions.
Additionally, the association develops and supports volunteer leadership, serves as a voice for alumni as the university evolves, and provides lifelong learning opportunities.
The Communications and Content Creation Fellow will primarily be responsible for creating content and designing materials that enhance our current programming and communications designed for alumni and volunteers from each of Indiana University's nine campuses and centers.
