Get Involved

Learn what you need to know to get involved with ASR

The two types of Alumni Student Recruitment (ASR) involvement are high level and low level. Due to a policy passed by Indiana University in April 2012, Programs Involving Children, all volunteers that may come into contact with children are required to complete a background check. However, if a volunteer is attending an event or program with an admissions representative present, then a background check is not necessary. An admissions representative is defined as an Indiana University employee representing the Office of Admissions, or an alumni volunteer who has gone through the background check process. This page lists the ways to get involved; for the high-level activities, a background check is required.

Please review the ways to get involved. If you have not already registered to be an ASR, please join us!
