Colleen SchmitAlumni Relations Officer

Growing up in Madison and earning two degrees from UW–Madison, I have long admired the School of Human Ecology. It is an immense honor to join the SoHE team as Alumni Relations Officer and apply my expertise in development to support the School’s research, education, and outreach. In my work with alumni and donors, I have witnessed incredible generosity and joy through philanthropy. I find building and strengthening connections to be very rewarding, and am grateful it’s a core aspect of my job.
