Joy Moore, former director of stewardship and donor relations in University Development, has been appointed associate vice president for alumni relations, Senior Vice President for University Advancement James Husson announced.

A 1981 alumna who received an honorary degree at the 2010 Commencement Exercises for her work with the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, Moore succeeded John Feudo ’82, who after seven years in the alumni relations post has joined University Development as senior development officer.

Husson said the leadership transition would strengthen the University’s $1.5 billion “Light the World” campaign, which earlier this year crossed the $1 billion threshold. A major facet of the campaign’s success, he said, is “providing compelling opportunities for alumni to deepen their engagement with their alma mater.”

Moore worked in the University’s development operation shortly after graduating and followed that with positions at the University of San Francisco and University of California at Berkeley. After stints as interim head of school at The Archer School for Girls in Los Angeles and Dana Hall School in Wellesley, she served for four years as interim and then deputy head of the South Africa-based Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, launched by the famed television personality and executive in January 2007.
