Development & Alumni Engagement

Because there is no specific charge to this committee at this time, our Assistant Executive Director of Advancement will reach out to faculty members (especially those who have volunteered to assist) periodically to solicit advice and ideas and ask for assistance with fund-raising initiatives. Advancement, Communications, Admissions, Career Services, Event Planning, and the Dean will meet periodically to plan and execute alumni engagement initiatives and will request faculty assistance as needed. The Dean is always open to more and better ways to engage alumni. The Dean will report at least monthly to the faculty regarding development and alumni engagement.
