UNC Appoints Allie Steg Haskett to VP for Development and Alumni Relations

April 25, 2017

April 25, 2017 — University of Northern Colorado President Kay Norton today promoted alumna Allie Steg Haskett to vice president for Development and Alumni Relations.

Steg Haskett, who currently serves as UNC assistant vice president for Development, will replace Wayne Webster when he leaves May 19 for a similar position he accepted at the College of Wooster.

In her current role, Steg Haskett leads the university's fundraising team. She directs UNC's development strategy and operations, manages the university's team of gift officers and works closely with UNC donors. An experienced development executive, Steg Haskett's 12-year career with UNC has resulted in securing multiple, million dollar gifts and grants in support of UNC priorities and the growth and professionalism of UNC's development operations.

"Allie is a visible and well-respected member of our university community, and her career experience gives her and the division staff the continuity and skill necessary to move UNC forward during and after the recently announced comprehensive fundraising campaign," UNC President Kay Norton said in a campus memo announcing the appointment.

Upon graduating with a bachelor's degree in Human Communication from UNC, Steg Haskett, who also holds a master's degree in nonprofit management from Regis University, started her career developing volunteers and donors for the American Cancer Society. She returned to UNC in 2005 as associate director of alumni relations. Shortly thereafter, she was appointed UNC's director of corporate and foundation relations and then assistant vice president in 2011. She also served as interim vice president for Development and Alumni Relations during the 2014-15 academic year before Webster's arrival.

"Among the many privileges of my career is the opportunity to enable UNC donors to invest in the university, and over time, see that investment return educated graduates, new research, and community improvement. I look forward to continuing this work in an expanded leadership role," said Steg Haskett.

In making the announcement, Norton also thanked Webster for his two years of service to the university.

"Under his leadership, the university launched new initiatives, enhanced our operational agreement with the UNC Foundation, and took the steps necessary to launch the Campaign for UNC," she said. "We send him and his family our kindest regards as they finalize plans to join the Wooster community."
