Meet The Staff

For more than 140 years, Wesley College has pursued an important mission in higher education—to educate young men and women to make a difference in their communities and around the world. The Office of Institutional Advancement helps mobilize the resources for this undertaking, and building mutually beneficial relationships is at the core of what we do. Whatever your affiliation with Wesley, we strongly value your interest and involvement and consider you a member of the Wesley family and a partner in our goal of continued success. Institutional Advancement consists of four functional areas--development, advancement services, alumni relations and annual giving and marketing-- working together to forge the connections and cultivate the necessary support and volunteer leadership to propel the institution forward.
