Chief Advancement Officer
College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) is seeking an extraordinary leader who has a passion for higher education to serve as the chief fundraiser, head of marketing and communications, and alumni relations leader for the college. The Chief Advancement Officer (CAO) is responsible for understanding the mission, needs and value proposition of the college in order to strategically create awareness, engagement and philanthropic support from a variety of constituent groups including prospective student, donors, alumni, and friends.
CFAES is one of the university’s largest colleges, with 3,400 undergrads, and 40,000 alumni with a rich history grounded in the establishment of this land grant institution in 1870. The college is positioned to maintain a record-breaking fundraising pace of five straight years of growth (FY19 goal = $34 million). The CAO will play a pivotal role in maintaining this record-breaking momentum by leading an innovative, sophisticated and high-functioning Advancement team. The CAO reports to both the Assistant Vice President of Development and the Vice President for Agricultural Administration and Dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, and leads a full complement of Advancement professionals comprised of approximately 8 development staff, 12 alumni, engagement, stewardship and event staff and approximately 20 marketing/communications staff.
Position highlights include opportunities to accomplish the following:
• Finalize plans and implement the next comprehensive campaign for the college.
• Prioritize the college’s marketing and communication efforts to ensure effective, efficient outreach to a broad base of constituents.
• Strategically engage alumni in efficient and effective ways with particular focus on increasing annual support for the college.
While the development and alumni relations staff have been led by this position in the past, the addition of the marketing/communications staff under the college’s Advancement umbrella is new and now mirrors the university’s advancement model. In addition to leading the growth of this team, the CAO will be a key member of the fundraising leadership team for the university and join a best-in-class Advancement environment that provides the resources, talent, and culture of collaboration to ensure success. Additionally, he/she will be a key member of the Dean’s leadership team.
