Letter from the Chair
Dear Kelley Family Community,
As Chair of the Kelley Family Leadership Council, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Kelley School of Business and Indiana University. Congratulations on this exciting step for you and your student. You have joined a caring, supportive, and amazing community at Kelley.
When my son, Max, moved from New York City to Bloomington three years ago, it felt very far (and foreign) for all of us. I knew I wanted to stay connected and engaged with the School, much as I had done with his previous schools, so I could better understand the experience, help him be more effective and connect with other parents. I joined the Kelley Family Leadership Council to get a closer look at how the school is creating transformative experiences for its students. Additionally, I hosted parent events in New York City (here's hoping we can do that again soon!) and I make annual financial contributions to invest in the Kelley experience. I am proud to be a Kelley Parent Ambassador, sharing my knowledge, love, and passion for this wonderful and exciting school.
The college experience can be overwhelming for your students (and you) to navigate. Your role in their lives will change but your student will still need your support as a stable, reliable foundation in their dynamic world. Kelley staff and faculty will also be supporting your student with a wide variety of programs and services, so there will be many resources available. It can be a difficult time for everyone but encourage your students to take advantage of these opportunities (and you should too!).
On behalf of the Kelley Family Leadership Council, congratulations and welcome to Kelley! Go Hoosiers!
