The University of Wyoming (UW) holds a singular distinction among public four-year institutions in the United States. As the only university serving its state, UW has not only a huge responsibility but boundless opportunity! Located in Laramie, Wyoming, a unique college town boasting a vibrant culture and deep Western roots, the University is proud of its impressive endowment, which stands at just over $750 million, the largest endowment of any of the Mountain West Conference member institutions.
UW is committed to building and fostering a culture of deep engagement and philanthropy in support of the University. As a part of that effort, the University of Wyoming Foundation is building an advancement enterprise that mirrors the excellence of its great institution by growing a team of collaborative, curious, results-oriented, and mission-driven advancement professionals. The UW Foundation is a trailblazer. UWF thinks big, embraces bold initiatives, and strives to be the best in all that it does.
The UW Foundation seeks a Vice President for Advancement Services to lead a team of dedicated professionals performing critically important work to advance UW’s mission and impact. If you are a collaborative and strategic systems thinker who values inclusivity and deep mutual respect, this is an ideal opportunity to explore. The UW Foundation is on the precipice of unprecedented growth. Embracing a digital-first approach, the organization is eager to place an effective advocate with broad technical and leadership competencies who can inspire partners across the advancement and University ecosystems. Prior experience with campaigns as well as database implementation and maintenance will be key to success.
