Meet Carol Kennedy!
The College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences is pleased to announce our new Director of Development, Carol Kennedy. With more than 15 years of experience in philanthropy and voted as the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ 2019 Woman of Influence, Kennedy will be an invaluable asset to the College.
Hailing from Chicago, IL., Kennedy has an extensive background in philanthropy and development with most of her work in California where she worked with a variety of nonprofits, most notably the San Diego Public Library Foundation where she helped raise a record $85M to build the city’s new Central Library (featured on both CNN and MSNBC). Kennedy is also President of the ABQ-ALC Board, an organization that helps adults obtain their high school education.
“We are very fortunate to have someone of Carol’s exceptional background and ability join our administrative team,” said Interim Dean Fran Wilkinson.
“As the daughter of what I call two ‘super educators’ I spent a tremendous amount of time in libraries and they became like my second home. I am super excited about joining this amazing team and wåorking together to build a great future for our beloved libraries.”
In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, jogging, spending time with her Chug (Chihuahua/Pug) and Doberman and playing one of her many sitars.
