Alumni Board of Directors

The IPFW Alumni Association Board is a collective group of IPFW alumni with degrees conferred from both IU and Purdue. The Board is responsible for approving all programming funds and providing advisory support to the Office of Alumni Relations in terms of programming and significant changes. 

We are always looking for dedicated alumni who are interested in giving their time and energy to help improve our programming and overall experience. Are you interested in being a member of the IPFW Alumni Association Board? 
Fill out this interest form and someone from the alumni office will be in contact with you!
