Associate Vice President for College Advancement
9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
As the Associate Vice President for College Advancement, I manage the College's relationships with private foundations and government agencies. I provide leadership in securing grant support in order to maximize educational opportunities for the St. Scholastica community and regional audiences. In a typical year the College receives about $4 million in grants.
I spend my day: ·
-- Meeting with St. Scholastica faculty, staff, and administrators to discuss grant funding needs and opportunities.
-- Identifying foundations and government agencies that provide grant funding in areas related to identified St. Scholastica priorities.
-- Meeting with representatives from foundations and government agencies to explore potential areas of collaboration.
-- Managing stewardship efforts with current foundation and government donors.
-- Serving as the College Advancement liaison to the School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing.
-- Work with you to help secure funding for academic programs, instructional equipment, scholarships, research, outreach projects, and other purposes.
-- Assist with questions you may have about administration or stewardship of current grants.
-- Answer questions regarding the College's strategic funding priorities.
I have been with the College's College Advancement Office since 1980. I received my bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University and my master's degree from Harvard University.
