Simmons College of Kentucky

Vice President for Institutional Advancement


The Vice President for Institutional Advancement is the chief development officer of the College and provides leadership for securing the public and private support essential to fulfill the Simmons College of Kentucky mission. The Vice President is responsible for the management of all fund-raising, marketing, and community relations endeavors; and actively collaborates with the President, the College’s senior leadership, and the Board of Trustees to define and implement an overarching advancement strategy. In accomplishing these goals, the Vice President develops and maintains relationships with alumni, donors, potential donors, and the community at large. The Vice President for Institutional Advancement reports to the Chief Operating Officer and works closely with the President; and the Vice President supervises the Director of Development.

College & Strategic Profile

Simmons College of Kentucky has benefited from strong, stable, visionary leadership during the tenure of President Kevin W. Cosby, a highly talented senior leadership team, a dedicated Board of Trustees, and a strategic plan that helps guide decisions and resource allocation. The Vice President for Institutional Advancement will join an institution in the process of building a high performance advancement program and pervasive philanthropic culture that will provide critical support for its strategic goals. The Vice President will join a number of critical initiatives in progress. Specifically, the Vice President will be expected to:

1. Execute and lead a campaign

Simmons expects to launch its first capital campaign in 2014-2015 and to complete this effort in 2018. College leadership and the advancement team have been working to identify, cultivate and solicit the donors needed to meet a $20-million working goal. The Vice President will be expected to join this work in progress, evaluate and work the campaign plan, capitalize on its early success in key areas like scholarships, capacity-building, athletics and the annual fund, continue building and engaging the donor pipeline, and mobilize volunteers, trustees, alumni, and campus constituents to make the campaign a success.

2. Cultivate and solicit principal gifts

The Vice President will be expected to model and execute successful principal and major gift fund raising, both through supporting College leadership and board members and through personal management of a small portfolio of high net worth individual donors. Also critical is the Vice President’s capacity to recruit, retain, and mentor a high performance team of development officers and volunteers, as well as to ensure that other College leaders are given the tools, support, and training they need to expand the College’s reach into the major gift pool and help build the pipeline of support. The campaign is the catalyst the College needs to mobilize all available resources in building a sustainable major and principal gift program that will persist long after the campaign has successfully concluded.

3. Engage constituents

Simmons’ alumni giving rate is lower than its peer and aspirant schools, reflecting somewhat the relatively underdeveloped area of the college’s alumni base, limited investment in creative alumni programming prior to current College leadership, and rapid enrollment growth in the last two decades. Alumni loyalty and passion, annual fund and athletics fund-raising progress, and post-graduate success indicate there is great potential to engage alumni more effectively in a broad spectrum of activities that will support the College’s strategic goals. The College has begun implementing a more integrated approach to advancement in the last five years.
