Meet the team at University Advancement and Alumni Engagement

Since taking the helm to lead the former Development and Alumni Relations offices, Madeleine Hardin has initiated a number of changes to the two departments. Now under one leader, employees from both areas are enjoying a new name, new roles, and the numerous benefits of a larger team. The amalgamation of the two areas has resulted in streamlining the office to create efficiencies to better support the institution in the areas of fundraising and fostering alumni engagement.
