Associate Dean of Advancement

American University Washington College of Law Washington, DC

The Washington College of Law (WCL) at American University is a world-class law school with a vibrant community of accomplished faculty, engaged administrators, passionate alumni, and extraordinary student leaders. WCL hosts world-renowned programs in clinical legislation, experiential learning, intellectual property, and international, health, business, environmental, and criminal law.

Since its founding 120 years ago, Washington College of Law has fostered a tradition of providing opportunities for those historically excluded from the mainstream of the legal profession. As WCL extends a century-long tradition of inclusive scholarly excellence, its brightest chapter lies ahead. In 2023, the Washington College of Law was recognized by the White House, and WCL’s renowned Clinical Program celebrated its 50th anniversary as a longstanding leader in the field.

The Opportunity

WCL seeks an accomplished, collaborative, motivated, and strategic leader and senior fundraising expert to serve as the next Associate Dean of Advancement (ADADV). Reporting directly to the Dean of the Washington College of Law, the Associate Dean of Advancement will lead a team of advancement professionals responsible for principal and major gifts, corporate and annual giving, and alumni engagement with administrative support.

The ADADV will strategically plan, direct, and coordinate all fundraising activities at WCL, including prospect identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship. In addition, the ADADV will serve as a chief fundraiser during the final year of the University’s historic $500 million Change Can’t Wait campaign.
