Mailing Invitations and Certificates

Formal invitations to the Indiana University Bloomington Honors Convocation are mailed to each eligible student's home address, along with a formal letter of commendation signed by IU President Michael McRobbie and Provost Lauren Robel.  

E-mail invitations are also sent to all eligible students. Invited students are asked to respond to the invitation on the online RSVP form.

A certificate that recognizes the student as a Founders Scholar is also mailed to the same address.

Verifying Name and Address Information

To ensure that mailings reach them at the correct address and that names appear in the preferred way in Honors Convocation printed materials, Founders Scholars should do the following:

  • Review name and address information at studentcentral.indiana.edu.

  • Click on the Personal Information tab to confirm that the student name is spelled and formatted correctly, and to confirm or update the student home address. That's where Honors Convocation materials are mailed.

  • To prevent Honors Convocation materials from being mailed, and to keep their names from being printed in the program booklet, students must opt out. A Student Directory Restriction in the Student Information System (SIS) is necessary in to do this. More information is available here. The Office of University Ceremonies cannot process these requests; students must submit them personally.

Letters of Commendation

Each Founders Scholar receives a formal letter of commendation, signed by IU President Michael McRobbie and Provost Lauren Robel, which may be added to portfolios and resumes. The letter is included with the invitation to the ceremony.
