Introducing Melissa Evans, the new Director of Annual Giving for Indiana University School of Dentistry


The IU School of Dentistry is happy to introduce Melissa Evans as the new director of annual giving, working with John Hoffman and Peppy Parsey on the development team.

Melissa joins IUSD from Ivy Tech Central Indiana where she was the assistant director of development. She started her development career at the IU Foundation and earned a master's degree in student affairs in higher education at Indiana State University.

"We are excited to welcome Melissa to our team," said John Hoffman, assistant dean of development. "Her experience in higher education, combined with her friendliness and enthusiasm, will make her a valuable part of our efforts as the new director of annual giving."

Melissa is eager to meet dental school alumni. Her initial goals are to increase participation in the Dean's Society and grow the dental school Priority Fund.

Melissa and her husband Kyle have been married for one year and they have two dogs, Emma and Carl. When she's not working, Melissa enjoys live music and bowling.
