Asian American Alliance Inc. invites you to our signature leadership connection series, “Seat At The Table”, with Dr. Nasser Paydar, Chancellor of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and Executive Vice President of Indiana University. Join us on December 14, 8 to 9:30 am at Barnes & Thornburg for a candid conversation on diverse and inclusive leadership lessons. Dr. Paydar is originally from Iran and he is a proud Hoosier for over 30 years.
The Seat At The Table is free and open to all, but registration is required:
Paydar was appointed chancellor of Indiana University East in 2007, serving in that role until he returned to IUPUI in 2012, when he was named the campus’s executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer. He became IUPUI’s fifth chancellor in 2015, succeeding Charles R. Bantz.
Paydar earned bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering from Syracuse University in 1979, 1981, and 1985, respectively. As an IUPUI faculty member, he has served as principal and co-principal investigator on research grants from federal and state agencies and private companies, including Cummins Electronics, DePuy, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Army, and the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center. His research in the area of solid mechanics, with applications in biomechanics and electronic packaging, has been published widely in scientific journals.
