“As co-chair of the largest capital campaign in the school’s history (two billion dollars), I worked closely with Lee to engage alumni in this effort. We knew that alumni giving would be critical to the success of the campaign. Lee directed the thinking and the development of a strategy to integrate the alumni association into the capital campaign. There were many innovative ideas adopted that continue to enhance the campaign.”
