Congratulations to Dr. Colleen Cross

I am pleased and grateful to announce that Dr. Colleen Cross will begin serving in the role of Assistant
Director of Foundation Relations starting June 1, 2020. Many of you know Colleen, as she has been with
FR since December 2018, first as a Graduate Fellow and currently as a Postdoctoral Research Associate
after earning her Ph.D. in Peace Studies and Systematic Theology from Notre Dame in Summer 2020.
Colleen has greatly supported the work of FR through her curation of over 200 funding opportunities for
faculty on our website, key benchmarking and research projects, and the development of more than a
dozen proposals to foundations. In her new role, Colleen will have her own portfolio of foundation
proposals and will support the other FR fundraisers on larger foundation proposals, as well as with
research and special projects.

I would like to thank all of you who have met with Colleen since she started in Development years ago,
and I know that Colleen is looking forward to connecting with more of our colleagues as she begins this
new position in service to the University. Please join me in congratulating Colleen on her upcoming new
