Alumni Board of Directors

Our governing body

The Alumni Board of Directors is the governing body for the O’Neill School’s alumni network and group affiliate of the IU Alumni Association. Each year, our Alumni Board of Directors creates alumni programming, advises current students, and fundraises for the O’Neill Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, which supports exceptional undergraduate and graduate students on both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses.
