Contacting State Officials

The Office of Government Relations represents IU’s legislative initiatives in the Indiana Statehouse. Due to the interests that many departments or units may have in furthering a particular legislative issue, there have been instances, unbeknownst to members of the Government Relations team, in which individual requests have been made from IU entities directly to individual legislators or the entire body. In order to maintain professional working relationships with public officials and keep our IU messages coherent and effective, the Office of Government Relations requires that all university departments and units contact the office prior to any written or verbal communications with public officials relative to university-based interests.

If you or members of your staff request mailing lists or contact lists for communicating your messages, you must register this request through this office.
