Gene Tempel, president and CEO of the Indiana University Foundation since 2008, has been appointed the first dean of IU’s new School of Philanthropy, the university announced Friday.

IU President Michael A. McRobbie and IUPUI Chancellor Charles R. Bantz made the appointment, which wil be voted on by IU’s board of trustees Oct. 12.

Tempel had been expected to start Monday as a senior fellow at IU’s Center on Philanthropy research program, where he previously was executive director for 11 years.

But, with his new appointment, Tempel will take over leading, planning and organizing the IUPUI campus-based philanthropy school, which the university believes to be the first of its type in the world.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education approved the new philanthropy school Sept. 14

Tempel’s previous work experience include serving as vice chancellor of external affairs at IUPUI, vice president of the Indiana University Foundation, director of external affairs at the IU College of Arts and Sciences, as well as teaching philanthropic studies and higher education, and public administration.
