Danita and Robert Forgey are being honored for their recent gift to fund several existing student scholarships at the School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI. The Forgeys’ contribution of more than $700,000 will impact SOIC students through contributions to three scholarships in Health Information Management, the Alvin and Nadine Givens iDEW Scholarship, and the school’s general fund, with emphasis on diversity programs. This represents the largest single philanthropic gift to SOIC-IUPUI.
Danita Forgey holds a M.I.S from the School of Informatics and Computing and was director of the Health Information Administration program—now known as Health Information Management, or HIM—after the school took it over from the IU School of Allied and Health Sciences. Danita serves on the school’s HIM Advisory Board and has been recognized with a Volunteer Service Award. Robert Forgey earned a B.A. in history and a B.S. in accounting from IU Bloomington.
