Friends, faculty and staff of Indiana University East are welcome to celebrate the life of Chancellor Emeritus David Fulton during a public memorial service at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 9, in Vivian Auditorium.
Fulton passed away September 11, 2016. He is survived by his wife, Marilyn, and their children, Benjamin, Alison, Kate, and Alex, as well as grandchildren, family and friends.
Fulton left an impact on many in the region through his contributions as an educator, administrator, community leader and public servant. His legacy is exemplified by the more than 2,000 Indiana University degrees he conferred as chancellor; the creation of off campus sites in New Castle and Connersville; the development of IU East’s art collection and influencing the naming of the Tom Thomas Gallery in Whitewater Hall; and connecting the campus to community, just to name a few examples.
For those who would like to make a contribution to honor Fulton’s legacy, the family has asked that memorial contributions be made to the Starr-Gennett Sustainability Fund at the Wayne County Foundation.
