Director of Development
The position will report to the Senior Director of Development in the College of Arts and Sciences and will additionally have opportunities to partner with professionals in principal gifts, foundation and corporate relations, alumni relations and events, stewardship, volunteer engagement, communications, and research to ensure their success as a part of a multi-faceted, nimble and well-resourced advancement team. The ability to both lead and partner on campus while regularly traveling to prospect and build a strong portfolio in an assigned geographical territory is essential.
Among the College’s fundraising priorities that all development team members have the opportunity to participate in and raise support for are faculty excellence, a vibrant Arts District emerging near 15th Avenue and High Street, a core chemistry facility, graduate student support, undergraduate scholarships providing increased access for academically-qualified students – especially from our Ohio communities – and experiential learning opportunities for research, internships, and travel abroad. Helping donors to find where their philanthropy aligns with the university’s and the unit’s priorities provides for a stimulating, creative, and rewarding work environment.
Individuals passionate about the power of a liberal arts and sciences education environment and able to articulate the challenges and opportunities that it faces in the world that we live in today are encouraged to apply.
Our environment is complex. It demands the ability to think strategically, creatively and collaboratively; to thrive in a world focused on continuous improvement; and to prioritize your work in order to accomplish your metric fundraising goals. In return, you will be inspired daily by innovation and be supported by and contribute to a strong and extensive network of talented Advancement professionals in University Development.
