Dr. Mallory Jagodzinski

 Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs


Dr. Mallory Jagodzinski is a recent addition to the IU South Bend community by way of southeastern Michigan (and yes, she’ll show you on her hand where she’s from). She graduated from Michigan State University where she was a member of Tower Guard, the Honors College, and Phi Beta Kappa. After MSU, she continued her studies at Bowling Green State University where she received a master’s degree in Popular Culture, a graduate certificate in Public History with a concentration in Fundraising, and a doctoral degree in American Culture Studies.

After defending her dissertation, she joined the United Way of Greater Toledo as a campaign fellow for the 2015 fundraising campaign. Having spent most of her adult life in higher education, she was elated to join the staff at IU South Bend in January 2016 as the assistant director of alumni affairs (and to have a new Big Ten team to cheer for!).
