Purdue appoints new financial aid director
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University officials announced that Ted Malone from University of Alaska Anchorage will be the new director of the Division of Financial Aid.
"Ted brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the financial aid office, which is a key resource to help students achieve success at Purdue," said Pamela T. Horne, associate vice provost for enrollment management and dean of admissions. "Last year, the Division of Financial Aid awarded more than $500 million to Purdue students. The office also provides excellent service to our students, and we know Ted's 24 years of leadership has prepared him to manage the administration of increasingly complex federal, state and institutional programs, as well as additional outreach and education on college affordability and financial literacy."
The appointment is effective Aug. 24. Joyce Hall, the previous director, will retire in August after 25 years at Purdue.
Malone served as director of student financial assistance at the University of Alaska Anchorage since 2002, where he was responsible for all aspects of financial aid, scholarships and veterans' programs on the main Alaska campus and four other campuses in south-central Alaska. He served as president of the Western Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, as well as the Alaska and Arizona state financial aid associations, and was on the board of directors of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
"The opportunity to work at Purdue where financial aid is valued as key both to students' access to higher education and their success is exciting," Malone said. "The role financial aid and its services play keeps evolving, and I will be working toward strengthening this resource at Purdue."
Prior to working at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Malone was associate dean of financial aid and veterans' programs at the Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood, Wash., and director of student financial aid at Glendale Community College in Glendale, Ariz. He also has held director positions at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix and Simpson College in Redding, Calif. He has an associate degree from Centralia College in Centralia, Wash., and bachelor's and master's degrees from Simpson College.
