The leadership team for Purdue University in Indianapolis continues to take shape, with Sara Dickey being announced earlier this month as the inaugural associate dean of students at the new Purdue campus.

Dickey joins Purdue from her current role as an associate dean of students at IUPUI and brings with her a wealth of experience. She has been at IUPUI since 2013, with roles in housing and residence life, student conduct, and student advocacy and support.

Prior to IUPUI, Dickey worked at North Park University, Hope College, Kalamazoo College and Western Michigan University. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in counseling in higher education from Western Michigan University.

“Sara’s established relationships in Indianapolis, her genuine care for students and her understanding of the existing landscape will help ensure a smooth transition,” said Katherine Sermersheim, Purdue University’s associate vice provost and dean of students. “She was the clear candidate to provide the leadership, direction and guidance for all things student success and student life on the Purdue Indianapolis campus.”

Dickey will officially start Nov. 13, 2023.
