Vice President, Advancement & Alumni Relations; President, George Mason University Foundation

George Mason University is seeking an experienced, visionary leader who will serve as both Vice President, Advancement & Alumni Relations and President, George Mason University Foundation, Inc.

Located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region in Fairfax, Virginia, Mason is a young and innovative university that, in just a short time, has made impressive strides in size, stature and influence. Today, as Virginia's largest public research university, the University is setting the benchmark for bold, transformative learning experience through an experiential and global education that serves the needs of students and communities.

In 2016, George Mason University moved into the highest research category (R-1) as determined by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. As one of the top 300 universities in the Academic Ranking of World Universities – and top 95 in the United States – Mason has been named one of the top 50 universities under 50 years old by Times Higher Education.

The Vice President for Advancement & Alumni Relations and President of the Foundation will join a well-managed organization, celebrating the conclusion of an ambitious and successful campaign. The chosen candidate will report jointly to the President of the University and the Foundation Board of Trustees and have the opportunity to work harmoniously with a multitude of highly engaged and energetic University and Foundation partners.

While these are two distinct and vital positions, in both roles the successful candidate will need to partner with the University President, Foundation Trustees, University senior leadership, and the Board of Visitors and will have the ability to be an adaptable, diplomatic and energetic thought leader who will provide active leadership and guidance in advancing the philanthropic needs of the university. The successful candidate will build and sustain strong and sincere interpersonal relationships both internally and externally, will demonstrate a track record of major and principal gift fundraising success, and will possess the leadership and managerial acumen necessary to inspire and motivate an ambitious, highly-integrated advancement team and program.

George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason's academic and culturally inclusive environment.
