UArctic Names Morgan Dulian First Executive Director of Development

Morgan Dulian
In this inaugural role, Dulian will launch a global philanthropy program in support of promoting viable communities and sustainable economies in the North.

The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a network of universities, colleges, research institutes, and other organizations engaged in education and research in and about the North. Committed to upholding its principles of sustainable development as well as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and infrastructures that enable member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions.

To advance its mission, UArctic partnered with Lindauer in the search for its first Executive Director of Development.

Morgan Dulian brings 15 years of leadership experience to the role, along with a CFRE professional credential (Certified Fundraising Executive), a masters in nonprofit management from Regis University, and a bachelors in communication from the University of Colorado, Boulder. In 2022 she was recognized as a Top 40 Under 40 by the Alaska Journal of Commerce.

Most recently, Dulian served as the director of development for the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), an UArctic member institution. During her tenure with UAF, she led the team through an eight-year period of rapid growth and change which resulted in a nearly 100% increase in philanthropic investments. In addition to being an accomplished leader, Dulian is honored to work side-by-side with benefactors in structuring transformational philanthropic investments. She looks forward to serving in a similar capacity for UArctic.

Beyond launching the international philanthropy program and leading the giving team for UArctic, Dulian will also serve as the executive director for the UArctic Foundation United States (UAFUS), a US-based 501(c)3 to support the projects and activities of UArctic.

Morgan Dulian was appointed in July of 2023. The search was led by Lindauer Executive Vice President Libby Roberts and Search Consultant Josh Maker.
