From the Philanthropy File
As we welcome students and faculty back to campus, we must bid a fond farewell: Vice Chancellor for External Relations Maddy Maxeiner ’76 retired last month. During Maddy’s tenure, Morris launched its first marketing initiative; strengthened its work in external relations; and increased its capacity in scholarships, donors, and dollars. In the words of Chancellor Jacqueline R. Johnson, “Her keen sense of humor, her ability to match donor interests with campus needs, and her dedication to Morris and its constituents have made a lasting impact; no one has a more profound understanding of Morris’s mission.” We wish her well as she moves into a new phase of her life.
In partnership with the University of Minnesota Foundation, 100 percent of all gifts designated to the Morris campus are received by and invested in the Morris campus.
