Indiana Philanthropy Alliance President and Chief Executive Officer Claudia Cummings has been chosen for Indiana University’s O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs 2021 Distinguished Graduate Alumni Award. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the school and recognizes Cummings as an accomplished role model for today’s O’Neill School students and the greater community.
“O’Neill taught me how to process information, find solutions to advance and lead change for the common good, and I reference those lessons each day in my work,” Cummings said. “Our COVID experience shines a bright light on the critical role the public and nonprofit sectors play. O’Neill prepared me and legions of Hoosiers to rise to the challenge.”
She holds a bachelor’s degree from Franklin & Marshall College and MPA from Indiana University.
