The University of New Hampshire is a 150-year-old comprehensive undergraduate and graduate research university with land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant charters. Its 13,000 undergraduate students from 70 countries are housed on its Durham, NH campus and are enrolled in one of the 100 major fields of study. The College of Health and Human Services is the seat of 8 departments: Communications Sciences and Disorders, Human Development and Family Studies, Health Management and Policy, Kinesiology, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Recreation Management and Policy, and Social Work. CHHS partners with public and private organizations to improve health and quality of life outcomes, share new knowledge, and educate future health and human service professionals.
The University of New Hampshire Foundation was established in 1989 to build private support for the university. The goal is to strengthen programs, support students, and provide opportunities for faculty. The UNH Foundation is in the final stages of a $275 million campaign, “CELEBRATE 150: The Campaign for UNH,” aimed at obtaining new funds for need-based and merit scholarships, opportunities that complement classroom experiences, expand research excellence, improve recruiting of top faculty and strengthen infrastructure.
Under the direction of the Associate Vice President of Development (AVPD) and the Dean of CHHS, the Director of Development will plan, direct, organize and coordinate all philanthropic activities for the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) and Northeast Passage, an adaptive and recreational therapy program. The Director will work with the AVPD and Dean to create a comprehensive strategic plan that will maximize philanthropy for the College, including identifying and providing stewardship to prospects and donors. A minimum of 3-5 years of experience is required, with particular experience in health and human service-related fields.
