Smith Takes Helm at IU Foundation

Daniel C. Smith has been appointed president of the IU Foundation. Smith, who served as dean of the IU Kelley School of Business for the past eight years, is a seasoned fundraiser who secured close to $170 million in gifts to the school during his tenure. President Michael A. McRobbie believes Smith holds a “deep understanding of the complexities of fundraising in a difficult economic climate that will allow him to effectively guide the long-term development strategy at IU.” Gene Tempel, who formerly held the position, is now heading the new School of Philanthropy at IUPUI. The IU Foundation oversees the strategizing, coordinating, and executing of all IU fundraising goals and initiatives, and is located in both Bloomington and Indianapolis.
