Steven Setchell, a 1996 DePauw University graduate who has been serving as associate vice president for alumni engagement and campaign initiatives at his alma mater, has been appointed to serve as interim vice president for development and alumni engagement. He takes over for Melanie Norton, who recently announced she is leaving her post to establish an independent philanthropic consulting practice.

Setchell majored in English (composition) at DePauw and went on to earn a master’s degree in public policy analysis from the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs. He began working in DePauw’s admission office while still a student. He spent nearly three years at Ohio Wesleyan University as associate dean of admission operations before returning to DePauw in 2003 as director of the Annual Fund. Setchell went on to serve as a major gifts officer, director of corporate and foundation relations, and campaign manager, and chaired the University’s 175th anniversary planning committee.

In April 2013 he was appointed to lead an expansion of alumni involvement in the life and mission of DePauw and has been collaborating with Norton on projects related to The Campaign for DePauw while maintaining major gift fundraising responsibilities.

A longtime member of the Greencastle community, Setchell serves on the board of directors of Beyond Homeless Inc. and he’s a past member of the Putnam County Community Foundation Board of Directors and the City of Greencastle’s Commission on Sustainability.
