On being a Bear

UNC’s global community expands far beyond our campus, with half of our alumni living outside the state of Colorado. Senior Director of Development Ryan Little knows first-hand just how far our alumni go when they graduate. Working with donors across the southeast, southwest and northeast, Ryan helps individuals, who while geographically far from campus, seek a connection and closeness to UNC through their philanthropic support for our university and our students.  

Moving around and building connections is something Ryan is good at, really good at. Having lived and worked across the U.S., Ryan’s 16 years of development experience allow him to understand how alumni wish to reconnect with their alma mater, regardless of where they live or when they graduated. Building these connections one-on-one allows Ryan to share the great work UNC is doing on campus, in Colorado and far beyond.

Though newer to UNC, I have to say that in my short period of time here, I couldn’t help but get caught up in the excitement of watching our Bears at Nottingham Field! Oftentimes intercollegiate athletics serves as the front window into an institution. There is such a tremendous amount of excitement seeing our student-athletes perform in front of passionate and loyal alumni and fans of the University!
