For more than 70 years, Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) has been educating professionals who work in public, private and nonprofit organizations to make a difference in the world. SIPA is where the world connects with new ideas from renowned scholars and policy experts across multiple disciplines and perspectives, bridging theory and practice to advance solutions to critical global issues. Today SIPA is the largest most diverse school of its kind in the United States with 1400 graduate students, more than 75 full time faculty, 200+ adjuncts, and numerous degree programs.

SIPA is a unique blend of academic learning, applied experiences and skills. It engages critical areas of relevance for business, governance and civil society.
Reporting to the Vice President of Development and the Dean of SIPA, the Associate Dean for Development leads the overall development strategy and activities of SIPA. With the larger university campaign underway, the Associate Dean will be a key partner to the Dean and work in close collaboration with SIPA faculty, administrators and staff in fulfilling the SIPA campaign goal. Providing leadership and management to a staff of seven is a critical component to this role as is continuing the work of building relationships with alumni, family and friends who have an interest in SIPA's mission. The Associate Dean will also manage his/her own portfolio and will create and execute strategies that effectively cultivate, solicit and close gifts either through the Dean's engagement or independently. With donors and prospects working and living around the world, some travel is required. The Associate Dean must have experience working with high net worth individuals and a track record of success in engaging, soliciting and stewarding complex gifts. A keen interest in the role international and public affairs plays to advance solutions to critical global issues is essential to a candidate's success.
