IUPUI Welcomes Two New Schools

Two new schools at IUPUI—the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, and the School of Philanthropy—have expanded the academic horizons available for students. The School of Public Health was recently named in honor of Richard M. Fairbanks, whose foundation’s generous support helped to establish the school. The school will focus on areas of urban health, health policy, epidemiology, and biostatistics. The school aims to increase the amount of spending on Hoosier health initiatives and promote a healthier workforce through public policy and research.

The School of Philanthropy has appointed Gene Tempel to serve as its founding dean. Tempel was president and CEO of the Indiana University Foundation and senior fellow at the Center on Philanthropy. His nearly three decades of experience in the philanthropic sector will be valuable in guiding the development of the school and securing world-class faculty and students. The Center on Philanthropy, The Fund Raising School, the Lake Institute on Faith & Giving, and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute will all be folded into the new school.
