Lydia Coppedge, Director of Development
Hi there! It’s an honor to work with Computer Science. Since joining the Purdue Science development team in June of 2019, I have had the pleasure of meeting all kinds of CS alums- from exciting folks shaping the startup world in California to fascinating government consultants on the eastern seaboard to pillars of our local community here in town.
My passion has always been hearing people’s stories. It’s why I began college studying journalism, and why I finished it studying Nonprofit Management, ultimately graduating with a Master’s in the same discipline from Indiana University’s O’Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs. I like to say I have the greatest job in the world: getting to know the great alumni of Purdue who are passionate about giving back. Like them, I strive to make our community and our University a better place in my role. Fortunately, this isn’t a difficult task; our community is strong, our University is great, and we have no shortage of allies in our Boilermaker family.
I continue to meet Boilermakers every day, and if you’d like to connect about where Purdue CS could go, I would love to meet you. As a native Hoosier who didn’t get to attend Purdue, I am always fascinated to hear about your campus experiences and where life has taken you since. I am always available at firstname.lastname@example.org.
