Re:        Vice President for Human Resources


I am pleased to announce that Trent Klingerman has been named Purdue University’s Vice President for Human Resources, effective July 1, 2015.  Trent has served as Interim Vice President since November and has served as the university’s Director of Employee Relations since 2012.  Before coming to Purdue, he was an employment lawyer from 2001 to 2012 at the legal firm of Stuart and Branigin LLP.

As Vice President, Trent oversees human resource activities for the entire Purdue University system, including benefits, employment, compensation, training and development, employee relations, and HR information systems.

Please join me in congratulating Trent on his new permanent appointment.
