Vice President for Advancement
In October of 2016, Jen Hunt returned to her alma mater, Anderson University, as the director of development. Since September 2017, Jen has served in the role of vice president of Advancement.
Jen received her bachelor’s degree in social work from AU and her law degree from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. Her career in development began in 2000, when she joined Deaconess Hospital Foundation in Evansville, Indiana, as the Annual and Planned Giving Officer. Prior to coming to AU, she served as the director of Development and Communications for the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention in Indianapolis for more than 10 years.
A native of Indianapolis, Jen lives on the northeast side of Indianapolis with her husband, Steve, and their two daughters, Abby and Cassie.
Her passion for Anderson University stems from the positive academic and spiritual foundation she received while a student here. She is excited about the opportunity to provide those same kinds of experiences for students today. Her primary role is to connect donors who share a passion for AU with meaningful giving opportunities.
Jen has been at Anderson University since 2016.
