The IU Alumni Association hosted the first live Trustee candidate forum on Monday, June 3 with the two candidates for the Board, MaryEllen (Kiley) Bishop and Ann M. DeLaney. The panel was moderated by Perry Metz, Executive Director of Radio and Television Services.
Indiana University alumni elect three of the nine members of the IU Board of Trustees. Indiana's governor appoints the other six, including a student trustee. All trustees serve three-year terms, with the exception of the student trustee who serves a two-year term. Since alumni-elected trustees serve rotating terms, alumni vote for one each year.
In accordance with state law, the annual election is conducted by the Dean of University Libraries on the Bloomington campus, with assistance from the IU Alumni Association.
