IU Alumni Association Executive Director J Thomas Forbes

We're all something larger than ourselves. We're not one voice, we're many voices. We're many campuses. We come from any places. And we go all over the world.

JT Forbes is executive director of the Indiana University Alumni Association.

A former trustee and former associate vice president at IU, Forbes's accomplishments include helping IU establish a comprehensive public affairs and government relations program and leading the legislative strategy for the university's life sciences initiatives.

He has worked with leaders in business, education, and government across the state to secure major funding for a number of the university's strategic priorities, including the Indiana Life Sciences Initiative.

Previously Forbes was director of State Government Relations at Cummins Inc. of Columbus, where he oversaw state government relations and offered guidance on issues concerning state workforce, education, and economic development.
