STORRS, Conn. -- Two new development officers have joined the University of Connecticut development staff. The appointments were announced by Ken Ashworth, vice president for development of the UConn Foundation, the University s fund-raising arm.
Teresa Munford of Williamsburg, Va., has been named director of development for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She began her new duties Dec. 4.
Munford holds a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's in business administration from The College of William and Mary, and has been with the development program at William and Mary since 1981. As director of development systems, she was responsible for systems support and participated in strategic planning for development and managed a budget of $3 million.
Jennifer Grey of Simsbury was appointed director of development for the School of Business Administration earlier this fall. She came from the Terence Cardinal Cooke Health Care Center in New York City, a long-term nursing facility, where she was responsible for fund-raising, public relations and volunteer services.
Grey, who holds a bachelor's degree cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University, and earned her master's in business administration from UConn, previously served as director of development for the American Lung Association in East Hartford.
"We're really thrilled to have two experienced professionals like Jennifer and Teresa who can lead our development efforts on behalf of their schools," Ashworth said. "They have the energy and experience to have a big impact on the academic programs of the University."
Munford and Grey will report both to Ashworth and to their deans. They will work with the dean and faculty of their respective schools and will call on alumni and other potential donors to raise funds for those programs.
