Mississippi University for Women recently announced Brandy Williams as the director of development.
"I have always loved working with alumni and students at The W. I'm excited to have this opportunity to establish and grow scholarships and to connect with our alumni," said Williams.
Since 2011, Williams has served as the director of annual giving in the MUW Office of Development & Alumni. In that position, she managed a portfolio of donors, implemented a student giving campaign and implemented an annual faculty and staff campaign. Williams increased student giving by 50 percent while also achieving the highest faculty and staff participation in university history.
In her new position, Williams will work to foster new relationships within the alumni base and the community. Williams said she hopes to create new one-on-one relationships while at the same time build upon the already existing connections that have been made.
"When we give to the university, we are changing the lives of students," added Williams.
Williams graduated with a bachelor of arts from The W in 2005. She has worked for the university since graduation. She has attended the Council for Advancement and Support of Education District Conference since 2009 and the RuffaloCody CampusCall Annual Conference since 2011.
