Jill Leauber Marsteller ’78

I have served my alma mater in a professional capacity twice, first from 1984-1995 and again from 2009 to the present.  As Senior Vice President for Advancement I oversee fundraising, outreach and the Berman Museum programs, and areas of external relations, all in efforts to advance the mission of the College through philanthropic support.

Title

Senior Vice President for Advancement

Background

I began my tenure at Ursinus as an adjunct English instructor prior to moving through the ranks of the College Relations Department, serving as a senior administrator until ultimately moving to Lehigh University as Vice President for Advancement.  In 1997 I was appointed Vice President for Advancement at Haverford College and oversaw a successful $200 million campaign, amidst the tumultuous economic and emotional post-9/11 era.  After serving as President of Cedar Crest College, I was appointed Senior Vice President for Advancement at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.  However, my higher education roots and love for my alma mater were too deep, and I returned to Ursinus College in 2009 and have been leading the Advancement Department ever since.
