Indiana University to launch School of Philanthropy

July 29, 2012

Sorry for the brief hiatus, folks.  (Although Sharmila has kept our Facebook page full of timely and fascinating stories while we’ve had a bit of a blogging break.)

A couple of weeks ago, Indiana University approved a proposal to launch a School of Philanthropy.  The press release says it will be “the world’s first school dedicated to the study and teaching of philanthropy and builds on the strengths of the existing [IU] Center on Philanthropy.”  The next step is for Indiana’s state commission on higher education to approve the idea.  IU has already raised $68 million out of a $100 million endowment target for the School.

This short interview with Eugene Tempel (pictured right) on PhilanTopic is worth a read, and explains more about how a School would differ from the existing Center.  Tempel is the former head of the Center on Philanthropy, who’s leading the effort to create the new School of Philanthropy.
