The Indiana University Foundation has named Joyce Rogers, a former chief executive officer of the Indiana Black Expo, as interim executive vice president for development.
The position was previously held by Rick Dupree, who recently announced his retirement.
In this role, Rogers will oversee the foundation’s development division, which manages the fundraising and stewardship activities of the IU Foundation.
“The work we do doesn’t just change lives; it changes generations. This interim appointment is humbling and allows me the opportunity to contribute alongside so many great supporters of the Indiana University Foundation’s mission, who get up every day to do all they can to make life better for our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends,” said Rogers.
Rogers has been serving at the foundation as vice president for development and external relations for diversity, equity, and multicultural affairs since 2013.
“Joyce has a distinguished record in the area of development and nonprofit leadership and played an important role in the overall success of the recent For All campaign,” said Dan Smith, president and chief executive officer of the IU Foundation. “Aside from her fundraising experience, Joyce brings a highly collaborative leadership approach that fits well with IU and IU Foundation culture.”
Rogers has served as vice president for development for Ivy Tech from 2003 to 2013. From 2001 to 2007, she served in multiple leadership roles for Indiana Black Expo, including president and CEO.
She is chair of the board for the Madam Walker Theater and chair of the Health & Hospital Corp. of Marion County.
