Position Description: Although the UCLA School of Dentistry was established in 1964 and may be fairly young, its achievements and accolades rival, and even surpass, those of other research intensive dental schools that have been around for more than a century. Since its inception, the School has focused on achieving and maintaining excellence in the four main areas of providing a comprehensive dental education, cutting-edge research, quality patient care and a commitment to public services. Philanthropy and the ability to raise funds for these four main areas of focus, along with the School's dedicated and talented students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends, have propelled the School of Dentistry to being one of the premier dental schools on the national and international stage. Strong leadership and the generosity of donors enables the continuation of these achievements for generations to come.
Reporting jointly to the Dean of the School of Dentistry and the Senior Executive Director, Health Sciences Development, the Executive Director of Development and Alumni Relations for the School of Dentistry will oversee the entire range of development and alumni relations for the School of Dentistry. The incumbent will establish long-range goals and objectives for the development programs and activities that reflect funding priorities of the School. This individual will design and implement a comprehensive and integrated development program for the School of Dentistry, addressing the specific needs and academic priorities of the School.
In conjunction with the Dean and Senior Executive Director, the Executive Director will maintain progress in meeting Centennial Campaign and overall fundraising goals, priorities, planning and strategy.
