The University Library is pleased to announce two recent additions to the Library Development Office. Both appointments are effective July 1, 2017.
“Adding two such experienced fundraisers will be a tremendous advantage and will position the Library for success in the University’s upcoming capital campaign,” said Dwain Teague, director of Library Development. The multi-year campus-wide fundraising effort will begin this fall.
Ryan Clark, Assistant Director of Library Development
Ryan will work with the director of Library Development to identify and engage donors, identify potential donors of major gifts, and connect donors with Library administrators and staff.
Ryan comes to the Library from the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he was the development relations manager. He has also served as a fundraiser for the Durham-based non-profit TROSA (Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers) and has managed and fund-raised for political campaigns in North Carolina.
Ryan holds a B.A. in public policy and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Jill Ullman, Associate Director of Library Development
Jill will develop and execute long- and short-term strategies to secure major gifts and will implement and manage special campaigns including reunion class gifts, endowments for specific programs and initiatives, and other special projects.
Jill was most recently director of development for UNC’s School of Media and Journalism. She has also served in fundraising roles for the East Durham Children’s Initiative, Citizen Schools, and All Kinds of Minds.
Jill holds a B.A. in art from Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina.
