North Carolina State University (NC State) was founded in 1887 with the purpose of creating economic, societal, and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina. Today it is the largest university in North Carolina with more than 36,000 high-performing students, over 9,600 preeminent faculty and staff, and 250,000 alumni. NC State is known for its leadership in research, education, and service and, as a research-intensive university, is recognized for its strengths in science, engineering, and technology. The University consistently ranks among the top public national universities and one of the best values in higher education.
The future of fundraising is high tech and Big Data, and NC State is looking for an Executive Director of Advancement Information and Technology to navigate its development department in this direction. In addition to a powerful group of supporters, including Chancellor Randy Woodson and Brian Sischo, Vice Chancellor of University Advancement, this role will also have an experienced team of talented programmers and report writers to partner with for success. The ideal candidate will have a combination of technical experience and expertise in CRM management along with sophisticated relationship skills to work with the department’s partners as they move into this new realm.
If you have the technical expertise and team management experience to take on this leadership role, have been a major contributor to a CRM conversion project, think strategically and proactively about how technology can enhance fundraising, and are well networked in the advancement services community, please consider applying for this opportunity.
