The dean’s primary role in fundraising is not exclusively to ask for money but to create the conditions that attract significant philanthropic investments.

Read this bestselling guide for a forward-thinking look at:

  • How the dean can take a lead role in defining the case for support and identifying inspiring projects defined by specific
    objectives rather than by categories of need.
  • The respective roles and responsibilities of the dean, the faculty, and the college development staff.
  • How deans can work most effectively with the president, the central advancement office, and their development officer.
  • The dean’s specific role in donor stewardship, campaigns, piloting new models for fundraising, volunteer management, and asking.

Bonus Resource

This book also includes a practical guide for deans on hiring the right development officer.
