Parents Circle

Parents are our greatest partners.

The Parents Circle is an exclusive group of families that are shaping the present—and future—of Indiana University. Joining the Parents Circle at IU is an opportunity to show your tremendous pride in your child’s achievements, and your commitment to their future success.

We invite you to join us.

You can join the Parents Circle by making an annual gift of $250 to the Parents Fund— providing critical support that directly enhances the IU experience. Many Parents Circle members support other areas of campus, as well, whether that be athletic programs, arts, and cultural offerings, or their child’s academic unit. 

As a Parents Circle member, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with IU parents from across the country and to receive a range of special courtesies based on your membership level.
