Sarah Andrews will join the UNC School of Dentistry as assistant director of development on Sept. 14, school officials recently announced.
Andrews, who grew up in Chapel Hill, currently is assistant director for gift planning operations within the Office of University Development. In this role, she has managed life income programs, the Charles Gerrard Legacy Society, the biannual Carolina Living Legends meeting, and marketing and stewardship initiatives, among other responsibilities.
Before joining University Development in 2007, she was a planned giving assistant with the UNC Center for Public Television. She received her bachelor of arts degree in sociology and justice and policy studies in 2001 from Guilford College and was a Presidential Scholar from 1997 to 2001. She also received her master of public administration degree from James Madison University in 2003.
As assistant director of development for the School of Dentistry, Andrews will plan and execute a comprehensive annual fund program, directing direct-mail, web-based and phonathon campaigns to increase Dean’s Club membership; and will raise unrestricted funds for the school and its departments, student aid and faculty support funds, class gifts and capital projects. She will also serve as executive director of the Dental Alumni Association and will plan Office of Advancement events.
“We are excited about Sarah joining the Office of Advancement,” said Paul Gardner, the school’s associate dean of advancement. “Those who have worked with her rave about her excellent work ethic, communication skills and great attitude. We’re fortunate to bring her to the School of Dentistry, and we look forward to introducing her to our many alumni and friends.”
