Assistant Vice President, Alumni Relations

Reports to the Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations (DAR).

About the position

The assistant vice president will be an externally focused visionary who builds and strengthens relationships with a diverse set of alumni volunteers and organizations while working in close concert with the university president, other senior leaders and faculty members. He or she will evolve the alumni relations program from its current stage of development, with its strategic plan as the guide, toward the level of best and breakthrough practices among peer institutions. The AVP will have independent and broad authority to work with university leadership to identify key deliverables, to refine the measures of effectiveness for the program, to reconstitute the volunteer governance and leadership of the organization and, thus, to move VCU into the vanguard of alumni organizations nationally. In accomplishing these important tasks, the AVP will establish strong, trusting relationships inside and outside the university, building a program whose whole exceeds the sum of its parts.
