Delaware Valley University (DelVal) is an independent, nonprofit university with deep roots in teaching through faculty-driven curriculum and experiential learning initiatives in both niche programs and broader fields of study.
DelVal was ranked among the “Top 25 Best Northern Comprehensive Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report for ten years (2006-2015), and cited by Princeton Review as a “Best College in the Northeast” from 2011-2015. Building on its strength as a college and its expansion in graduate programs, DelVal was elevated to university status in 2015.
In July 2016, Delaware Valley University welcomed its 13th President, Dr. Maria Gallo ¾ the first woman to hold this office in the institution’s 120-year history. DelVal has begun its next strategic planning process, which will leverage the school’s university status over the next six years and help increase its capacity across critical revenue streams, including contributed income. The strategic plan is expected to be approved by mid-2018, providing a critical roadmap for the work of the Development and Alumni Affairs team in the near term, and paving the way for DelVal’s next comprehensive campaign.
Delaware Valley University seeks a visionary fundraiser and effective change-agent to serve as its Vice President of Development and Alumni Affairs. Individuals who are strategic leaders, effective managers, and metrics-driven practitioners will be successful in this role. Campaign experience, a proven track record of securing major gifts, a background in alumni relations and athletic fundraising, a high regard for higher education, and exemplary interpersonal skills are strongly preferred skills for this position.
Candidates who bring a dynamic, creative approach to utilizing DelVal’s unique academic offerings, on-campus activities, and alumni events in the design and implementation of a comprehensive fundraising and engagement strategy are strongly encouraged to apply.
