Meet chief development officer, Aaron Kosdrosky

Aaron Kosdrosky

When I joined the College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) as chief development officer in July 2018, there was just one year remaining of Ever True: The Campaign for Purdue University. Now, it brings me great pleasure to report that contributions to the campaign, which concluded June 30, 2019, exceeded the University’s goal of $2.019 billion. Likewise, the College of Health and Human Sciences exceeded its goal of $77,275,000 with more than $87 million in contributions. Thank you for your support!

In my position as chief development officer, I oversee a team of eight alumni and development professionals dedicated to sharing the stories of HHS with alumni and friends, and connecting them to Purdue and HHS. Over the past year, we’ve held events in Washington, D.C.; Las Vegas; San Francisco; Lafayette, Indiana; and Florida (Sarasota, Orlando and Naples). At these events, Dean Marion K. Underwood presented her vision for the future of HHS, which includes establishing a new, shared “Nursing and Pharmacy Instructional Building” to house the School of Nursing and Purdue’s College of Pharmacy, and a new “HHS Home” building. This building will be a place for our students to call home; with collaboration spaces; study lounges; Student Services advising offices; the Dean’s Office; and HHS Business, Communications and IT offices. It will also serve as the home for our newest department, Public Health, and one of our oldest departments, Health and Kinesiology.

As the HHS development staff travels the country, I hope you’ll consider meeting with us so we can personally share with you the activities taking place in HHS and the college’s goals for the future. And, of course, we’d love to get your input and also hear your Purdue memories. We look forward to seeing you when we’re in your area!
