Antioch University Midwest (AUM) is pleased to announce the addition of Rosemary Naulty, the University’s new Manager of Institutional Advancement, who began her new position on December 1. With her extensive experience in the nonprofit sector and talent for grant writing, Naulty brings a uniquely qualified skill set to the position that will focus on alumni relations and donor gifts.
Naulty earned her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the University of Dayton in 1992. With more than 20 years of professional experience, she has managed a multi-year, $7.5 million fund distribution process for the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area, and was responsible for creating the Revitalize Consulting Network, a firm dedicated to business development, management, product delivery and customer service.
During her time as Development Director at the Springfield Museum of Art, Naulty created and implemented a multi-year development plan that included management of the Annual Fund, major gift solicitations, and incorporation of the first web-based donor software program to analyze giving information for future strategic planning.
Additionally, through her years of volunteer and professional service in Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery and Preble counties, Naulty has built strong relationships with the educational, cultural and business sectors in all of the Miami Valley communities.
As the Manager of Institutional Advancement, Naulty will not only be responsible for developing sustainable philanthropic revenue streams from individual donors and granting organizations, but will engage with the University’s alumni community in order to create quality long-term relationships between the alumni and University.
“We are focused on supporting our alumni and nurturing those relationships,” said Ian Swedish, Vice Chancellor of Institutional Advancement. “Alumni engagement is a high priority at AUM and we have been ramping up efforts in a structured and strategic way over the past year. Hiring Rosemary further solidifies our commitment to having a meaningful and ongoing relationship with our graduates.”
Further, as a member of the AUM president’s leadership team, Naulty will collaborate with the broader University-wide Institutional Advancement team supporting the president of AUM in fulfilling the campus’s mission. Naulty will also be responsible for the overall leadership and direction of the campus’s development and alumni programs and will serve as the key representative for Antioch University Midwest with individual donors, alumni, faculty, and staff.
