Meyer Appointed VP of Advancement
Doane College has selected longtime University of Nebraska Foundation administrator Kevin C. Meyer to lead Doane’s Advancement Office.
Meyer is currently Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for the University of Nebraska Foundation, which secures and manages financial support for the university’s four-campus system.
“Kevin’s distinguished career and impressive accomplishments for the University of Nebraska Foundation certainly positions him well to lead the Advancement Office for Doane in the coming years,” said Doane College President Jacque Carter. “I most admired his passionate belief in Doane’s mission, his commitment to the liberal arts, high energy, integrity and genuine good-nature. These qualities will serve Doane very well. I know I speak for the entire college community when I say that we are thrilled to have Kevin as part of our team.”
Meyer will join the Doane staff in mid-August. As Vice President for Advancement, he will manage alumni affairs and fundraising in support of Doane’s School of Arts and Sciences and School of Graduate and Professional Studies. He will work closely with President Carter and Doane alumni and friends toward achieving goals laid out in the strategic plan developed in 2012; providing opportunities for an increasing number of students to benefit from the unique experience Doane provides.
Meyer, of Lincoln, began his tenure with the University in 1991, working in regional major gift development and constituent development supporting the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus. Over the last 12 years, he served in numerous roles with the foundation’s senior leadership team. He has provided leadership to staff members responsible for centralized development functions of annual giving, planned giving, and corporate and foundation giving, and in central service functions of campaign planning, communications, information technology, research, and donor relations. As Senior Vice President, he led a transition to an integrated advancement model that more closely aligned goals and operations of the foundation and four distinct campus alumni associations.
Meyer earned a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Honors and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He has served in various volunteer capacities with Southwood Lutheran Church and FarmHouse fraternity.
