She will be responsible for all aspects of the fundraising program, including major and planned giving, the annual fund and an ongoing capital campaign called the New College Promise.
In a press release Duvall said, “The opportunity to join such a strong leadership team headed by the visionary and charismatic President Donal O'Shea at one of the nation's leading public colleges for liberal arts and sciences was an opportunity I could not miss.”
Committee members chose Duvall for her impressive track record, professionalism, her knowledge of educational advancement and her personal warmth.
