Chief Development Officer, College of Osteopathic Medicine

Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) – College of Osteopathic Medicine seeks a talented, ambitious, and collaborative leader to serve as its inaugural Chief Development Officer (CDO).

Founded in 1875, Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) is a vibrant, comprehensive, research-based, teaching-focused, student-centered learning community. IUP combines the academic opportunities of a large university with the highly personalized and intimate learning-centered environment of a small college. Over 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students in five Academic Colleges are enrolled in IUP’s accredited and nationally recognized programs. IUP is poised to make significant strides in healthcare education with the establishment of its new College of Osteopathic Medicine. This initiative stems from the university's commitment to addressing the critical shortage of physicians, particularly in rural populations, within the State of Pennsylvania. With only three schools of osteopathic medicine in Pennsylvania, none of which are located at public universities, IUP's endeavor represents a pioneering effort to expand access to medical education.

Reporting to Dr. Miko Rose, the Founding Dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Chief Development Officer – College of Osteopathic Medicine will be responsible for oversight, direction, and management of all aspects of fundraising for the IUP COM. This will include major donor identification, planning and execution of strategic initiatives, solicitations, and development of continued relationships. In addition, the CDO will manage the identification and reporting of grants and proposals. The CDO is responsible for managing a prospect and donor portfolio in various stages of identification, qualification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship with special emphasis placed on the oversight of project initiation and sponsorship for a newly developing COM. The CDO will manage this key initiative by assessing the overall fundraising potential of the area; creating comprehensive short term and long-term development plans; building strong relationships with potential donors and collaborating with key senior leadership at the university for a coordinated fundraising campaign. The successful applicant for this role will increase fundraising dollars and donors over a five-year period by developing major and principal gift opportunities. The CDO will also work collaboratively with other university personnel to identify new sources for public and private grant funding, write proposals for grants, and maintain publicly funded grants. The ideal candidate will possess a strong sense of ethical conduct that will inspire confidence with colleagues and donor prospects, a desire to make a change in healthcare, and flexibility working in a dynamic, start-up program environment.

This is a full-time position that will be performed on site in Pennsylvania. Salary commensurate with experience with a generous benefits package.
