Family Leadership Council

Become part of the Kelley Family Leadership Council.

The Kelley Family Leadership Council is a group of dedicated parent volunteers who serve as ambassadors for the Kelley School of Business.

The philanthropy, volunteerism, and engagement of our council members makes a meaningful impact on the Kelley School of Business and its students. Our parents connect with top Kelley leaders and faculty, form new relationships with fellow Kelley parents, and participate in events regionally and on campus.

Council member responsibilities

  • Share observations, suggestions, or concerns about the Kelley School's undergraduate programs and campus life.
  • Provide resources through professional networking to secure mentoring, internships, and employment for current Kelley students and graduates.
  • Assist in hosting Kelley events for prospective, new, and current families as your
    schedule allows.
  • Make a leadership gift that is commensurate with your philanthropic capacity and passion for Kelley. An annual gift of $5,000 is encouraged.
  • Attend council meetings twice a year.


Letter from the Co-Chairs

On behalf of the Kelley Family Leadership Council, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our Kelley families. We want you to know that parents are valued and are important members of the Kelley family. We are delighted that your child has chosen to attend Kelley, and we hope that as your student grows at Kelley, you too, will become involved with the Kelley community. As a Kelley parent, you can play an active role in your student’s experience: be a Kelley Ambassador by hosting or attending a regional event; provide the necessary connections for internships and job opportunities; support the Kelley Family Leadership Fund; connect and share with other parents on the Kelley Parent FB Group; or join the Kelley Family Leadership Council.

We invite you to consider joining the Kelley Family Leadership Council to form deeper connections with the Kelley community. Through participation, service, and philanthropic support, the Kelley Family Leadership Council will contribute to a greater experience for our children. Along with other dedicated parents who have current Kelley undergraduate students, as well as recent Kelley alumni, you will have a unique opportunity to positively impact and make our children’s years at Kelley unforgettable. The Family Leadership Council shares a common interest with many parents; we want the best and most rewarding experience for our Kelley students. We are committed to enriching the Kelley campus experience for our students and families.

Please contact Sara Herold, Associate Director of Development, Parent Engagement at 812-856-0205,, if you would like to learn more about the Kelley Family Leadership Council, discuss ways to support Kelley, or share your observations and concerns. We are here to support you and we welcome your input. 

We wish you and your students a most successful year at Kelley.
