Indiana State University has selected Andrea Angel as chief executive officer of the ISU Foundation. Angel, who previously served as associate vice chancellor for alumni and development at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, will also serve as vice president of university advancement at ISU.
The university says, in her new role, Angel will lead a team of more than 30 staff across four units. The Daleville native succeeds Ron Carpenter, who stepped down as CEO of the foundation at the end of 2017.
"We are so thrilled to welcome Andrea to the Indiana State family. She is an energetic and effective leader who understands how to build lifelong engagement with students and alumni," ISU President Deborah Curtis said in a news release. "I believe her authentic, genuine approach to advancement activities will help the university fulfill our commitment to providing access to a high-quality education that is also affordable."
Angel has held several roles at UA-Little Rock during her career, including senior director of development in the Office of Alumni and Development, director of development and external affairs for the university’s College of Business, and director of athletic development/senior woman administrator.
Angel will begin her new role at ISU November 12.
