Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit
As the largest unit on campus, the College of Arts &
Sciences forms the academic core of the Carolina experience. Our
mission is to create knowledge and discover innovative solutions to
the world’s greatest challenges, to educate outstanding
undergraduate and graduate students, and to encourage faculty,
staff and students to contribute meaningfully to North Carolina,
the nation and the world.
The Arts & Sciences Foundation strives to enhance the College by meeting the needs of the various academic departments, promoting teaching, research and service, and supporting the continuing development of knowledge and learning. With a $750 million goal in the University’s Campaign for Carolina, we recognize the importance of a team with diverse talents, backgrounds, and experiences. This diversity – among our 19,000-plus undergraduate and graduate students and nearly 1,600 faculty and staff – is one of our greatest strengths. We know that when people with varied backgrounds and perspectives come together, new ways of thinking and seeing the world emerge. We seek team members who use their unique experiences and rich culture to provide critical resources for our faculty and students.
As a member of this valued team, the Associate Director of Development will be responsible for the identification, cultivation and solicitation of Arts & Sciences major gift prospects. This position will work collaboratively with the other associate directors of development and will report directly to one of the directors of development at the College of Arts & Sciences Foundation.
