Associate Vice President for Alumni Outreach and Annual Philanthropy

Dear SCSU Community,

I write today to provide an update regarding our search for Southern’s next Associate Vice President in the division of Institutional Advancement – a position that will be specifically focused on alumni outreach and annual philanthropy. I am pleased to report that the search committee has reviewed the dossiers of many qualified and experienced candidates and have invited the following (4) candidates to campus next week:

Candidate Evaluation Survey 


Please take a moment to review the materials submitted by each applicant and to mark your calendars for the open forums - it is very important that all members of the Southern family are able to meet and dialogue with each candidate. In addition to these important meetings, each candidate will be meeting individually with specific groups of constituents, including Student Government, Institutional Advancement, Faculty Senate, Alumni Foundation, University leaders, and the search committee.

Once you have reviewed the materials from each applicant and met them in-person, I would encourage you to submit your input via the respective survey links for each candidate (see above). All survey data will be anonymous and shared with both the search committee and the Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Mr. Michael Kingan.
I look forward to seeing many of you next week! If you have any questions regarding this process, please feel free to contact me directly.
Kind Regards,
Dr. Craig Hlavac
