Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus has named Heidi Schulz to the position of executive director of development. Schulz was formerly serving in multiple roles at Indiana University, primarily as director of the Cox Research Scholars Program. She assumed the new role as Susie Graham retired from the position on June 30 after 17 years of service.

“I have long been an admirer of the life changing mission that Ivy Tech serves in our community,” Schulz says. “The opportunities Ivy Tech provides is second to none, and I look forward to working with the faculty, staff, and students to help Ivy Tech continue and expand upon that mission.”

In her previous role as director of the Cox Research Scholars Program, she was instrumental in developing one of Indiana University’s largest single donor gifts into a prestigious scholarship program. Schulz directed the programming, communications, recruitment, and administration of one of Indiana University’s premiere scholarship programs.

Schulz earned her bachelor’s in general studies from Indiana University. She has led several successful United Way campaigns, chaired the United Way of Monroe County Board of Directors, and is a graduate of Leadership Bloomington.
