About the IUOA Alumni Association:

The IUOA Alumni Association was founded in 2006 as a formal group within the IU Alumni Association. Dave Calvin and Rob Holman worked to formalize the group and to establish a memorial scholarship to honor the untimely deaths of two IU and IUOA alumni, Ryan Bullerdick and Nathan King.

The alumni board consists of former IUOA student and professional staff who serve on a volunteer basis. Each member is committed to furthering the mission of IUOA through preserving and promoting connections among alumni and between alumni and the IUOA of today. The board meets at least twice each year to achieve this purpose and to manage the annual Memorial Scholarship.
