Jennifer McDonough, an educator with more than three decades of experience in educational and nonprofit advancement, has been appointed Stevens Institute of Technology’s vice president for development and alumni engagement.
In the position, McDonough will play an integral role in the university’s most ambitious fundraising campaign in its history, The Power of Stevens, which exceeded its $150 million goal in May 2018, six months ahead of schedule.
The Board of Trustees has resolved to raise the goal to $200 million and extend the campaign through the university’s 150th anniversary in 2020.
McDonough will lead development and alumni engagement efforts in support of Stevens’ core mission, strategic vision, and campaign priorities focusing on student success, faculty excellence, and a vibrant campus.
“Jennifer McDonough is an experienced development and alumni engagement professional who has an impressive record providing expertise to top-tier organizations in higher education and the nonprofit sector, and as an alumni and development leader within several prestigious institutions,” Stevens President Nariman Farvardin said in a statement. “Her expertise and focus will help Stevens to further advance its progress in engaging its successful alumni in New Jersey and across the globe, and in meeting its ambitious goals for the future.”
