Colorado State Appoints New Vice President
Colorado State University has appointed Joyce Berry, the dean responsible for securing the University's largest gift in its history - $26 million to name the Warner College of Natural Resources - the next Vice President for University Development and Advancement, pending approval of the Board of Governors of the Colorado State University System.
Berry, a Colorado State alumna, will be replacing Donald Fry, who announced he is resigning July 1 to pursue other career opportunities. Between now and his departure, Vice President Fry will continue to provide direct advice and counsel to the president and assure the university of a smooth transition. Berry will begin the transition process into her new role April 1.
In all, with her experience at Yale University and Colorado State, Berry has more than 20 years of fundraising experience. At Yale, Berry helped secure major donor, corporate and foundation gifts, including major gifts from the Pew, Doris Duke, Andrew Mellon and Hewlett foundations. She also played an instrumental role in designing and implementing the Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies' first capital campaign. At CSU, in addition to the Warner gift, this year Berry has secured $3.5 million primarily in scholarships and fellowships and potentially $8 million more in diverse gifts to the college.
In her new role, Berry will be responsible for planning, developing and administering a coordinated University-wide effort to establish and strengthen ties with University constituents; raising private funds to support the strategic initiatives of the University; and overseeing effective recognition and stewardship programs for alumni, donors and friends.
