Institutional Advancement

The Office of Development and Alumni Relations works with Lasell's president, faculty, staff, and alumni to help establish broad levels of institutional awareness and philanthropic support for the College on a regional and national basis.

Development and Alumni Relations for Lasell College is composed of four main areas:

  1. Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, Dean Hickey, oversees the entire department.
  2. Alumni Relations and Annual Giving (Lauren McCauslin and Kelsey Barrows) strive to reach annual fundraising and "friend" raising goals for the department.
  3. Major Gifts (Wendy Dillon and Terri Houston), and Leadership Annual Giving (Rebecca Brenner) is focused on securing leadership gift support at the College. Strong relationships with friends and donors and building an enhanced philanthropic culture strengthen Lasell College in substantial ways across campus both today, and long into the future.
  4. Planned Giving & Corporate & Foundation Relations (Kathy Urner-Jones '83), is focused on securing various types of planned gift support for the College in addition to building relationships with and assisting faculty with writing grants for support from C & F resources.

Through these areas, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations connects and communicates with its broad constituency base, building ongoing relationships with alumni, donors and friends of the College, and strenghtening participation in and support of Lasell's programs and educational initiatives.
