Vice President for Development and College Relations Search


Wofford is pleased to announce a national search for a vice president for development and college relations. 

The search begins as Wofford’s new president, Dr. Nayef Samhat, is launching a year-long strategic planning conversation with the campus community and reaching out to all of the college’s stakeholders. By the fall of 2014, a new plan will outline a strategy for realizing Wofford’s potential to advance from its present status among the best liberal arts colleges in the South toward acknowledged national leadership in a range of educational programs. The timing of the search creates an exciting opportunity for a new vice president to fully participate in the planning process and to identify both the funding needs of the plan and the development strategy that will define Wofford’s future.
