She is responsible for the Annual Fund, which includes telephone campaigns, direct mail, e-appeals, and web-based appeals to support specific projects and unrestricted funds. She also works closely with the University’s Alumni Association Board of Directors to develop and support collaborative initiatives designed to engage alumni as advocates and donors.
