Lindsay Dorrance, the new director of alumni relations at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, joined the School in February and is now designing opportunities for alumni to remain involved with the School and to connect or reconnect with fellow Hopkins Nursing graduates and students.
“Lindsay’s proven track record of engaging alumni with each other and with students through programs and events will benefit the School of Nursing and our alumni from around the country,” says James Kelley, associate dean for development and alumni relations.
In the coming months Dorrance hopes to have many conversations with School of Nursing alumni. “I want to gain a sense of their needs and interests so the alumni office can serve as a resource to develop the academic and social interactions that strengthen relationships,” Dorrance notes. Among the many such opportunities she is now planning with alumni are regional networking events, social media groups, alumni-student mentorship programs, and Alumni Weekend.
Prior to Hopkins, Dorrance worked for the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation at Columbia University in New York. At Columbia she was responsible for the strategic planning and implementation of the alumni relations programming for the school, which included seven degree programs.
She holds a master of science in fundraising management and nonprofit administration as well as a master of arts in modern art from Columbia University. She earned her undergraduate degree from Trinity College in Connecticut.
