Halperin most recently served as director of development for the Evanston History Center, Evanston, Ill. She has previous IU experience, as director of development at IU South Bend.

As vice chancellor, she will lead development efforts on campus and oversee alumni relations and marketing.

"Jan brings a wealth of experience to IU Kokomo, in both marketing and media, and advancement," said Sciame-Giesecke. "We are excited to have someone with her background join our team. Her past experience working at IU South Bend is also a plus. She will help the campus continue to grow and seek external support to enhance our scholarship funds, athletic programs, and facilities."

Halperin said she's seen how an IU education impacted her own children's lives, and as vice chancellor, she can provide that opportunity to other students.

"The opportunity to give back to IU and to be a part of this community is a gift," she said. "My children received exemplary educations and launched their careers based on their IU degrees. I look forward to making a difference in students' lives, through creating scholarships and connecting with the community."

Halperin earned her bachelor's degree in history from University of Wisconsin, Madison.

She and her husband, Kent Kauffman, have three grown children, and plan to move from Chicago to Kokomo.
