Lesley University has named Janis K. Martinson to the position of vice president of institutional advancement, following a nationwide search.
Wednesday, June 04, 2014
She has also been director of advancement for The Waldorf School of Garden City, N.Y., and has experience teaching in public- and private-school English and drama programs in New York and New Jersey.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience as a results-oriented educator and executive to Lesley, which for more than a century has committed to innovative and community-focused education for women and men,” said Martinson, an alumna of Princeton University and a master’s of business administration candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management.
“Janis will be a great addition to the Lesley community,” said university President Joseph B. Moore. “Her education, her proven track record of creating and managing successful capital campaigns, and her commitment to supporting educational opportunities for all position her well to lead our Office of Advancement.”
At Miss Hall’s School, Martinson managed a centennial celebration and completed the school’s first major fundraising initiative, a $23 million campaign for campus improvements that surpassed $25 million. She also oversaw a subsequent $43 million campaign for endowment and facilities expansion, and secured millions in bequests and donations of buildings and land.
Martinson assumes her responsibilities at Lesley in late summer and will focus on deepening the engagement between the University and its 82,000 alumni, completing funding for Lesley’s Lunder Arts Center project in Porter Square, and enhancing financial support for the Urban Scholars Initiative and student scholarships.
