Development at IU

I'm proud of our professionalism and reputation, and that's due to the caliber of the staff: We hire smart, creative people. And I like the work ethic here. In return, the foundation treats its employees well.

— Loretta Higgins, Associate Director of Annual Giving

What is the development structure like at IU?

IU has a decentralized development structure, which means foundation staff members work in partnership with development staff at individual Indiana University schools, units, and campuses, all toward one goal: to help donors directly connect with and support the programs that mean the most to them.

Within our decentralized environment, we actively collaborate with university colleagues to foster and maintain strong personal connections to the campus and academic programs we’re helping support.
