Bluffton University names vice president for fiscal affairs

Arthur Woodruff has been appointed as Bluffton University’s vice president for fiscal affairs. Woodruff, who is originally from the Lima area, started his role at Bluffton on Jan. 2.

As a member of the President’s Cabinet and the university’s chief fiscal officer, Woodruff will provide leadership, oversight and stewardship for all aspects of Bluffton's financial resources, as well as oversee business services, human resources and campus facilities and grounds.

“Mr. Woodruff’s extensive experience in finance, including his experience in the health care arena, as well as his most current role as a controller in a small, private, faith-based college, make him ideally positioned to be the vice president of fiscal affairs at Bluffton University,” said Dr. Jane Wood, president.

Woodruff, an Allen East alumnus, graduated from Grace College in Winona Lake, Ind., in 2003. He received his Master of Business Administration with a specialization in applied management in August 2011 from Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Ind.

Since 2014, Woodruff has served as the controller at Grace College and Seminary. Before that, he was the administrator and treasurer of Christ’s Covenant Church in Winona Lake. Woodruff has also worked for Biomet, Inc. in Warsaw, Ind., Paragon Medical, Inc. in Pierceton, Ind., and as a financial analyst at DePuy Orthopaedics in Warsaw, Ind. 

Woodruff currently serves on the board for Raise the Dough, Inc.

Woodruff and his wife Stephanie have six children: Jolie, Cohen, Silas, Addilyn, Thaddeus and Daxton.
