Emili Bennett

Emili Sperling Bennett, a recent Master’s of Science in Technology and Human Resource Development Certificate graduate, recently received a $2000 Jerry F. Tardy Fellowship from the international Council of Alumni Association Executives (CAAE). She will present her research at the CAAE Winter Institute in Scottsdale, AZ in February 2018. Her research topic is “A Deeper (and Relevant) Investment in Alumni Careers and Wellness.”

Her project will benchmark best practices of wellness programming across other industries and higher education institutions. The project will propose how career development coaching and topics can be expanded to include wellness in its many forms, proposing resources, coaching, and programming for the alumni engagement field.

A few examples of wellness programming across the continuum of lifetime alumni engagement include: financial wellness for first time homebuyers, mid-level careerists, retirees; physical wellness, exercise and nutrition; mental wellness, sleep, and how to manage stress; intellectual wellness through lifelong learning.

The Tardy Fellowship encourages the advancement of junior professionals with two-to-five years of experience in alumni relations into senior alumni relations officer positions.

The fellowship is named in honor of the late Jerry F. Tardy, president and CEO of the Indiana University Alumni Association, who served as a great advocate of the alumni profession and a mentor to numerous colleagues throughout his career.

Ms. Bennett currently serves as the Indiana University Alumni Association Associate Director of Career & Professional Development.
