In addition, Sue works closely with key internal and external partners, including the Syracuse University Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Under Sue’s leadership, the team designed and managed the implementation of an institution-wide comprehensive stewardship and donor relations engagement program that received national recognition by the Advisory Board Co.

Her tenure with BGSU included a variety of alumni and volunteer engagement activities. Through collaborative efforts, Sue assisted with the creation of alumni engagement activities, including alumni events via chapters and societies, cultivation and stewardship receptions, homecoming gatherings, regional and national centennial celebrations, career mentorship and internship opportunities, and student-centered summer admission events.

    Sue, a native of Rochester, N.Y., received a B.A. in political science from Hartwick College, where she was a two-time captain of the swim team and served as a representative on Hartwick’s Alumni Association Board. Sue earned her M.A. in college student personnel at Bowling Green State University.
