Marianne Lord Hired as Associate Dean for Institutional Advancement

8/26/04—Boston College Law School is pleased to announce that Marianne Lord will assume the role of Associate Dean for Institutional Advancement at the Law School on September 15, 2004.

Lord has worked in development at Boston College for two decades, including time at BC Law where she stewarded the capital campaign for the library. In addition to her extensive knowledge of Boston College, Lord is noted for her dedication to the University’s Catholic and Jesuit mission. She currently serves on the Advisory Board for the Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Boston College.

“We’re excited to welcome Marianne back to the Law School,” said BC Law Dean John H. Garvey. “Throughout her career at Boston College she has consistently raised the bar for fundraising and has strengthened alumni connections through innovative and engaging programs which have highlighted the University’s leading edge research and distinctive academic endeavors. Her expertise and leadership will be a tremendous asset as the Law School pursues measures to realize the vision of its Strategic Planning process.”

Lord received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Political Science from Boston College before embarking on a career in development at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, where she was an associate director with special focus on trust and estate gifts. She returned to Boston College in 1984 as Director of Planned Giving and has served since in a variety of capacities, including her current role as Associate Vice President for Leadership Gifts and Regions in the Office for University Advancement.

In addition to her new responsibilities Lord will continue to work closely with Vice President for University Advancement Jim Husson and serve as a member of the University Advancement Planning Team, which will enhance the Law School’s participation and profile in the University-wide effort.
