In accordance with state law, the annual trustee election is conducted by the dean of University Libraries on the Bloomington campus, with assistance from the IU Alumni Association. The Board of Trustees is Indiana University’s governing board, its legal owner and final authority.
The IU Alumni Association is dedicated to serving the university and its diverse alumni, students and friends.
