Sponsored Programs Announcement

Sponsored Programs and Institutional Relations reporting shift to Provost's Office

June 30, 2020

Dear Colleagues,
As many of you know June 30 marks the end of the 2020 fund year and Swarthmore’s Changing Lives Changing the World comprehensive campaign. Additionally, it marks a leadership transition for College Advancement as we will soon launch a search for a new Vice President.
Capitalizing on this opportunity we would like to announce a shift in reporting lines for Sponsored Programs and Institutional Relations from Advancement to the Provost’s Office. Beginning July 1, 2020, these two offices will report directly to the Provost and Dean of the Faculty. They will remain in 101 S. Chester Road for the foreseeable future; however, we anticipate a move to a more central location on campus as suitable space becomes available.
We are excited to share this new reporting structure and the opportunity it presents to deepen engagement and interactions with the faculty, between our divisions, and with senior leadership in supporting our work.
Sarah Willie-LeBreton 
Provost and Dean of Faculty
Karl Clauss
VP for College Advancement
