Recognizing the career of Victor Borden

Professor Vic Borden speaks with colleagues at a celebration for his retirement from the IU School of Education

Victor Borden was honored with a celebration marking his retirement from the IU School of Education in April. 

At the celebration, Borden expressed his gratitude for the wonderful people he has had the privilege of working with across all campuses of IU and the marvelous opportunities he has been afforded: “Both of which have contributed substantially to my own development and success. I also gave back a gift in my own inimitable form and performed a parody song related to my career.”

Borden, a professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs, is also currently Senior Academic Advisor for the Project for Higher Education Reform in Vietnam (PHER:Vietnam). He directed IU's Charting the Future initiative from 2020-2023, as well as the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education from 2014-2022. Borden’s prior roles also include as Associate Vice President for University Planning, Institutional Research and Accountability at IU from 2005-2010.

A video from Borden’s celebration is available on the School of Education’s YouTube page.
