Tiger and Sammy

CEO as Chief Evangelist

Sue Cunningham - Council for Advancement and Support of Education

Fundraising and relationship-building occupy significant time for any head of school. The Council for Advancement and Support of Education advocates for the concept of ‘Integrated Advancement,’ aligning the efforts of fundraising, alumni relations, communications, marketing, and the infrastructure that supports those efforts. In some schools, multiple staff members take on these roles. In others, one may engage in all the roles. The head, however, sets the tone and expectation for a strategic integrated advancement effort. This Head-Talk will focus squarely on the leadership role of the CEO in advancing your school. 

About Sue: Sue Cunningham is president and CEO of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Prior to her appointment in 2015, Ms. Cunningham served as the Vice Principal for Advancement at the University of Melbourne (AUS) and the Director of Development at the University of Oxford. Previous to this role, Ms. Cunningham served as director of development at Christ Church, Oxford. She began her educational advancement career in 1998 as director of external relations at St. Andrews University.
