UM Amherst to privatize Advancement division

Post by MikeUMA » Thu May 04, 2023 11:55 am

I'm not educated on this issue and don't have much time to dig into it now, but at a high level this seems fishy, how fundraising at a public U is going to be privatized.

Is this a staff addition or is there a change near the top (St. Aubin or Boudway)? Anyone know?

Looks like this position reports to the Chief of Development, who is Drew. So looks like a position in addition to Boudway, who is a Director.

“Reporting to the Chief Development Officer (Athletics), the Director of Development is responsible for having a comprehensive understanding of campaign fundraising priorities, regularly meeting with prospects and donors (with a focus on face-to-face visits), regularly meeting with development colleagues and athletic leaders, preparing briefing materials and gift proposals, attend sporting events and other development focused engagement opportunities.”
