Continuing the Illinois State Legacy

The Alumni Association

All who have graduated from Illinois State University hold automatic membership in the Illinois State University Alumni Association. Individuals who have attended the University may be granted membership upon their request. Active members are those who have made a gift to the Illinois State University Foundation during the current or preceding fiscal year. All active alumni have the right to vote at the association's annual meeting and are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors.
