Meet the new senior director of Organizational Effectiveness…
Kevin Vedder

Senior Director of Organizational Effectiveness Kevin Vedder has been leading the newly created Organizational Effectiveness unit for just a short time, but he’s already settling in nicely.  As a 27-year Purdue employee, Vedder is used to change so he eagerly embraces the new role and is excited about the opportunities.


Organizational Effectiveness unit geared, ready to support University

We’ve all heard the saying, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” Well, for Purdue University getting what it’s always gotten isn’t acceptable as we strive to improve the University’s functions and better ourselves overall.

In early 2015 Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer Bill Sullivan articulated his vision that Purdue be publicly acknowledged as the best place to work in higher education as measured by efficiency, cost-effectiveness and employee satisfaction. Doing what we’ve always done wasn’t going to turn his vision into reality.

It’s no secret that, unfortunately, bullies are everywhere. We see and hear about kids being bullied at school and on the playground, and online cyber bullying is gaining momentum. However, when we look at the big picture, adults also fall victim to being bullied – especially at the workplace.
