Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs Dean John Graham has announced new leadership at the school’s Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus. Professor Thomas D. Stucky, who has been with SPEA at IUPUI since 2004, has been tapped as the Executive Associate Dean beginning July 1.
Stucky replaces Lilliard Richardson, who has completed his five-year term as EAD. Richardson will be taking a research leave in the Fairbanks School of Public Health and serving as a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Health Policy before returning to the SPEA faculty as a full-time policy studies professor.
Suzann Lupton, who started with the SPEA at IUPUI public affairs faculty in 2010, is joining Stucky in the leadership transition as Assistant Dean. A former attorney with Baker & Daniels, Lupton will be responsible for a variety of areas, including public affairs education, diversity promotion, and student services.
