Indiana University alumni have the privilege and responsibility to elect 3 of the 9 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.This year's candidates running for election are:
- Dennis Elliott of Bloomington, IN – BA’69, MA’10
- Patrick Shoulders of Evansville, IN – BA’75, JD’78
- Craig Wells of Franklin, IN - BS'94, MBA’02
In accordance with state law, the annual election is conducted by the Ruth Lilly Dean of University Libraries, Carolyn Walters, on the Bloomington campus, with assistance from the IU Alumni Association.
