Dear faculty and staff,

I am pleased to announce that effective November 10, 2020 the Office of Institutional Advancement and the Office of Communications and Marketing will merge. The new Office of Institutional Advancement and Communications will be led by Wendy DeMarco Fuentes, current interim VP of Communications and Public Affairs.

Wendy is a seasoned marketing and fundraising professional who joined The Graduate Center in 2018. She has excelled in raising the public profile of The Graduate Center, as well as in generating revenue through managing the special events and rentals portfolio.
