It is with mixed emotions that I share news of Alyssia Coates’ new role at Brown University in Providence, RI. Alyssia will be joining Brown as the Director of Development for Academic Initiatives – Diversity and Inclusion. In this position, Alyssia will have the dual responsibility of serving as the Advancement liaison to the administrative and faculty leadership for the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity along with managing a portfolio of major gift prospects.
Alyssia has had a long career at Notre Dame, notably with the Trio Program, Pre-College Programs, and Enrollment Division. During her time in Development, Alyssia has been active with the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and has taught the Moreau Course. She was a founding member of the Hybrid Gifts, and always found a way to share her many gifts with her colleagues. Alyssia has been a mentor, coach, cheerleader and friend to many on our team, and beyond.
Alyssia’s last day in the office will be March 25. Please join me in wishing Alyssia and her family all the best as they embark on this new adventure. Thank you for your service to Notre Dame, Alyssia!
