WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Amy Noah has been named vice president for development, effective immediately, after having served as interim vice president since April 1.

"Amy's performance in the interim role has validated her readiness for this job. She has an extremely successful background in fundraising at Purdue, as well as being highly regarded and well-respected among our many university stakeholders," said Purdue President Mitch Daniels, who announced the appointment on Friday (Nov. 1). "Her commitment and dedication to this university make her the ideal choice for this position, and I look forward to continuing to work with her on building and strengthening Purdue's fundraising activity."

A 1994 Purdue graduate, Noah has worked at the university in the Development Office for more than 12 years. She spent the first 10 years of her development career in the College of Engineering. Beginning in September 2011, she served as associate vice president for advancement in the University Development Office. As associate vice president, she oversaw development efforts in all schools and programs within the colleges of Engineering and Technology as well as Libraries and University Press, Discovery Park, WBAA, University Corporate and Foundation Relations, Planned Giving, and Purdue's West Coast development initiatives. Since becoming interim vice president, she has worked in direct partnership with Daniels to lead university-wide fundraising efforts.

"I am thrilled to be asked to lead this amazing group of individuals and to continue serving this institution that I believe in so strongly," Noah said. "Our goal, as always, will be to seek the private financial support that will help Purdue achieve success in learning, discovery and engagement."

The University Development Office plans, coordinates and implements fundraising programs among alumni, friends, corporations and foundations. Private giving has averaged $235.5 million over the past 12 years and has resulted in many new student scholarship funds, faculty support, facilities and innovative new programs.

Noah's appointment is subject to ratification by Purdue's Board of Trustees.
