 Drew Bratton

Welcome Andrew Bratton, Associate Director of Development

Andrew "Drew" Bratton joined The Kinsey Institute in January to lead our development efforts. Before coming to the institute, Drew was the Executive Director of the USA International Harp Competition (USAIHC). He has worked with numerous non-profit arts organizations in Indiana and Illinois, planning, producing and marketing shows and events.

Drew has a master's in Arts Administration from Indiana University, and performed and produced theater in Chicago.

“I'm excited about the opportunity to bring the mission of The Kinsey Institute to a wider audience. The Institute is a place where art and science come together, and I enjoy communicating that message to people.”

Drew's predecessor in the position, Patty Winterton, is now a Development Officer at the Indiana University Foundation, where she continues to assist in philanthrophic activities to benefit The Kinsey Institute. Drop Drew an email or give him a call at 812-855-7686. He is open and ready to talk!

Pat Lacy was honored this month by the Bloomington Convention & Visitors Bureau as “Front Line Employee of the Year.”

Anyone with any interest in visiting The Kinsey Institute first comes in contact with Pat Lacy. Whether first year students at Indiana University, a class from Ohio, visiting scholars, or interested individuals passing through town, Pat makes people feel comfortable.

In her down-to-earth style, she welcomes everyone, and answers all their questions and concerns with knowledge, honesty and respect. Many people go out of their way to drive into town to see the collections, combining a trip to the Midwest with the opportunity to visit the famous ‘sex institute.’  Pat's engaging personality and her knowledge about both The Kinsey Institute and our community resources are the number one reason that those who inquire actually do come in for a tour or a visit, and that, year after year, we have so many returning visitors. We are proud to have her, in every sense of the word, at our ‘front desk.’
