| The University of Iowa Foundation is looking to add two driven, energetic development officers to its dynamic 16-member athletics development team committed to success for UI student-athletes and working with a dedicated base of fans, alumni, and letterwinners to advance the UI’s 24 Division I athletics programs. The recently completed University-wide For Iowa Forever More campaign resulted in a total of $1.975 billion in gift commitments, with athletics raising over $273 million during the eight-year campaign. With an annual fund of over $17 million and 16,500 annual contributors, Iowa Athletics enjoys a strong base of support from our alumni and ticket holders, making the Tigerhawk one of the most recognizable brands in college athletics. In addition, Hawkeye Athletics has an ambitious athletics facilities master plan, with more than $200 million in facility improvements on the horizon, including an $89 million renovation to historic Kinnick Stadium. Successful candidates will demonstrate an understanding of and appreciation for intercollegiate athletics—particularly Hawkeye Athletics—and their role in a complex academic environment. |
