The Office of Institutional Advancement is pleased to announce some organizational enhancements designed  to build an even more effective division working to support the Institute’s goals.

Tony O’Brian has agreed to take on the position of director of advancement information services.  In this expanded role, he will provide leadership for ongoing business process analysis and other advancement services integration initiatives with Middlebury.  We have all benefited from the great skill and energy he brings to his responsibilities, and we are fortunate that he has agreed to take on this position.

To better reflect the demands of building a robust event program for both advancement and the Institute as a whole, Linae Ishii-Devine’s role will shift from manager of events and advancement services to manager of events and administrative services.  In addition to her leadership in the events area, Linae will partner with Beth McDermott on identifying and implementing continuing education opportunities for the group, the first of which is the guest speaker series at bi-weekly Advancement staff meetings.  Her organization, enterprise, and institutional knowledge have been and will continue to be key components of our success.

Finally, at the end of this month, Leah Gowron and alumni relations will shift their reporting from the provost’s office to institutional advancement.  This move will enable us to more effectively strengthen our ties with alumni and other constituencies as we build broad-based support for the Institute.  We are lucky to have had Leah as one of our closest campus partners, and look forward to all that we will accomplish in the years ahead.
