For nearly 90 years, Lawrence Technological University (LTU) has continued to prosper and accelerate its growth, hone its educational philosophy of theory and practice, build important community and professional alliances, and forge partnerships with the firms, organizations, and industries that hire Lawrence Tech alumni. Born in the middle of an innovation explosion that would change the world, Henry and Edsel Ford helped launch the revolutionary experiment that would become LTU, providing guidance and space in their sprawling former Model T assembly plant for the fledgling school. Founded as a college of engineering with only a few hundred students and a handful of faculty members, today LTU offers more than 100 programs in four colleges, with a total enrollment of approximately 3,000 students, and employs more than 300 full- and part-time faculty, making it among Michigan’s largest independent colleges.
Lawrence Technological University is seeking an Assistant Vice President for Development (AVP) to help build a culture of philanthropy by providing leadership, planning, management, and coordination for all development and alumni relations functions across the University. Looking towards its next major campaign, this is an exciting opportunity to join a team ripe with possibility and hungry for success, as it seeks to increase alumni participation, expand the base of leadership level donors, and grow the annual fund. The ideal candidate will be a mission-driven, innovative, and results-oriented leader who will significantly increase the level of engagement and fundraising to the University.
