University Advancement to welcome finalists for AVP for Alumni Relations/Executive Director of the Ohio Alumni Association position

University Advancement is entering the final stages of the search for OHIO’s next Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations and Executive Director of the OHIO Alumni Association.

“This position is a vital part of the University Advancement senior leadership team and essential to the continued success and growth of our University,” said Nico Karagosian, vice president of University Advancement and President and CEO of The Ohio University Foundation. “The Assistant Vice President provides strategic direction for alumni relations efforts and plans/implements programs, activities, and services for alumni and friends in order to build relationships that will advance the mission of OHIO and increase the base of private financial support.”

During the week of May 21, two professionals will meet members of our University community.
In addition to meeting with specific groups of students, faculty, and staff, each finalist will address questions from the public during an open forum. These open forums will allow candidates and the University community to interact with the candidates and to help inform the appointment decision. University Advancement invites participation in these forums and welcomes feedback from partners across the University.

“Thank you to the co-chairs, Bill Willan and Casey Christopher, as well as the entire search committee, for their diligence and effort throughout the search process,” said Karagosian. “They have worked hard to present our community with a talented and diverse group of finalists.”
