“On behalf of everyone at Indiana Tech, I’m pleased to welcome Dan Grigg as our new vice president for institutional advancement,” commented Indiana Tech President Dr. Karl Einolf. “Dan has an impressive track record in raising funds to assist students in reaching their educational goals, and in teaming with alumni and friends of the institutions he’s served to build support and engagement. As we implement our strategic plan with an eye towards our 100th anniversary in 2030, Dan’s experience and abilities will play an important part in our success.”

“I’m excited to join the Indiana Tech community,” Grigg remarked. “The university has a long and proud history, and I’m looking forward to getting to know our alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of Tech from around the country. Working together, we will all help Indiana Tech continue building bright futures for our students.”
