Development and Alumni Relations – DAR

The Development and Alumni Relations team, under the very capable leadership of our new Sr. Assistant Dean Mary Briese Matheron, works to engage Berkeley Law alumni and friends in the support of the school. Our main programs are fundraising, alumni engagement, and donor relations. There are 11 of us on the team today, but we also have the support of student and temporary staffers to help with data clean up and our major annual event, alumni weekend (Reunion). ¬†We hope to add a few additional permanent staff later this year. Brett Canter in IT, Rachel Deletto in Communications, and Catie Cariaga in Business are collaborative members, even though they sit with their distinct departments. We also work very closely with the Events Services Unit, the dean’s office, and the administration of the centers and clinics. While our average tenure at Berkeley Law is 6+ years, it’s noteworthy that half of us have been here more than 15 years and the others have been here for two years or less. Our mission is to raise money to make it possible for all the great teaching, learning, and advocacy at Berkeley Law to happen. Please let us know about all the wonderful things you are doing and come to us with any questions and suggestions.
