Lori Pope to serve as Director, Prospect Management

Dear colleagues,

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce Lori Pope as the new Director of Prospect Management.  In this role, Lori will be responsible for defining and leading a comprehensive strategy for portfolio management across the Development department. Lori has been an invaluable member of the Prospect Management team, helping launch the portfolio strategies for the West Region and Global Advancement team.  Moreover, her prior experience as an analyst with IBM provides an excellent foundation to move into this important leadership role.

I look forward to the Prospect Management team continuing to provide strategic partnership under Lori’s leadership.  Her experience, enthusiasm, and care for our team and mission will provide excellent servant leadership to an extraordinarily talented Prospect Management team!

Lori will assume this position effective Thursday, March 31st.  Lori will continue to work with the West Region and Global Advancement team until a candidate for her current ADPM role is identified.

Please join me in congratulating Lori on this promotion!

My best,

New financial aid position

Dear colleagues:

With a current goal of $565 million for undergraduate financial aid in the campaign, the University has an opportunity to provide historic levels of aid for deserving students and to provide extraordinary stewardship to the donors of these gifts. We will be posting a new Special Events & Stewardship position this week to focus on enhancing existing efforts and creating new stewardship opportunities for scholarship donors (both need-based and merit-based programs). The new program director for financial aid stewardship will serve as an internal partner for fundraisers (similar to an “AAD” for financial aid) and will work closely with colleagues throughout the University, including the Enrollment Division, and the Controller’s Group to enhance compliance and maximum spending on funds. If interested in learning more about this important role and a spot on the SE&S team, please let me and/or Ann Moran know. Additionally, please serve as a talent ambassador and share any additional names and ideas with Ann Moran. Thanks for your partnership!

My best,

Katherine Lane

Prayer of Mercy and Items to Donate

Dear Colleagues,
The Alumni Association will welcome more than 300 volunteer leaders back to campus for our annual Leadership Conference from April 14-16th.  On Thursday, April 14th, we will begin our conference with a Pilgrimage and Prayer of Mercy, leaving from the Morris Inn Ballroom a little before 8 p.m. and processing through the Doors of Mercy of the Basilica.  Our prayer will focus on the corporal works of mercy, and it will last approximately thirty minutes.  We welcome you and hope you can join us for this special prayer.

Additionally, we invite you to participate in this prayer by providing for a work of mercy to be done in South Bend. We are collecting donations to be used in social service agencies who are performing works of mercy. Linked is a list of current needs where you can sign up to provide one of these items (each item should cost around $10).

Please bring these items to the Eck Visitor Center welcome desk by noon on Friday, April 8. If you have any concerns or questions, contact me at

Thank you for considering our request,

Angie Appleby Purcell & Josh Noem

Condolences to Katherine Gardner

We are extremely disheartened to learn about the passing of Katherine Gardner’s (Flynn) Grandfather, Jim Flynn from Paducah, Kentucky. Jim died at the age of 83 on Saturday morning. Jim lived a bountiful and service-filled life that has been upheld by Kat and her entire family. Jim was an ambassador for the University of Kentucky and will have his funeral on Saturday, March 26th. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kat and her family.
