Bowdoin College Names Stephanie B. Frost as Senior Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations

Lindauer was honored to partner with Bowdoin College in its search for their new Senior Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, Stephanie B. Frost.

At Bowdoin, Frost will lead one of the most accomplished development and alumni relations teams in the country and will serve as a member of the College’s senior leadership group. She will play a critical role in bringing Bowdoin’s $500 million From Here comprehensive campaign to a successful conclusion, working with President Clayton Rose, the staff, and many across campus to build even stronger ties to the College’s nearly 23,000 alumni.

“Stephanie’s appointment follows a national search that produced a diverse pool of highly qualified and impressive candidates for this critical position,” said President Rose.

Frost recently completed seven years as the Associate Dean for External Relations at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she directed the planning effort behind the school’s next ambitious campaign, achieved record participation in annual giving among MBA alumni, and led strategies for development that resulted in raising $70–$100 million annually in principal, major, and annual gifts. Prior to this position, in which she also launched the school’s first branded planned giving program, Frost held leadership positions at both Fairfield and Yale universities and has done development work in New York City for The Metropolitan Opera and The Churchill School, among others.

A native of New Jersey, Frost is a graduate of Rutgers University, where she earned her undergraduate degree in theater arts and women’s studies, and holds a Master’s in women’s history from Sarah Lawrence College.

Frost will join Bowdoin this summer, when her predecessor, Scott Meiklejohn, will transition to his new role as a senior advisor at the College.
