Are you a dedicated advancement professional interested in
supporting a great public university and its students? Do you want
to work at a university where you can make your mark? Join the
philanthropy and alumni engagement team at the University at
Buffalo, the leading public university in New York State.
President Tripathi’s vision for UB focuses on fulfilling
its potential to become one of the nation’s leading public
research universities, expanding its reach and impact locally as
well as globally. In this endeavor, President Tripathi is committed
to giving top priority to philanthropy and alumni engagement as key
ingredients for realizing this vision.
Nancy L. Wells is vice president for philanthropy and alumni
engagement at the University at Buffalo. She leads the
university’s fundraising efforts and its engagement with more
than 240,000 alumni worldwide.
This is a great time to join our division. In 2011, UB received
a $40 million gift from an individual—the largest gift in its
history. And in 2015, UB received its first gift to name a school,
from alumnus Jeremy Jacobs, chairman of Delaware North Companies
and owner of the Boston Bruins. The Jacobs School of Medicine and
Biomedical Sciences will be relocated to the Buffalo Niagara
Medical Campus when our $375 million medical school building is
completed in 2017.
At the University at Buffalo, we’re building a culture of
lifelong alumni and donor engagement around the world and
aggressively advocating for greater involvement and support among
UB’s students, faculty and staff members, alumni and friends.
We invite you to join dedicated individuals in philanthropy and
alumni engagement who help advance UB to the next level of
excellence as a 21st-century global research university. More than
120 staff members work in the Offices of Alumni Engagement,
Advancement Services, Annual Programs, Constituent Records,
Corporate and Foundation Relations, Donor and Alumni
Communications, Donor Relations and Stewardship, Gift Planning, and
Prospect Research and Records, as well as major gift activities in
each of the university’s 12 academic units, the Division of
Athletics and other programs of the university.
