Mark SwensonAssociate Director of Development for the Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association

As associate director of development, I work closely with alumni and donors to advance private support for UW–Madison and the School of Human Ecology. My goal in working with current and prospective donors is to build long-lasting relationships and help them see the impact of their philanthropy on Human Ecology’s students, scholarship, and mission.

Having worked previously in non-profit and education sectors, I have a profound appreciation for the impact that human ecologists have on the world. As a UW–Madison alumnus myself, I am incredibly excited to work closely with the passionate donor and scholarly communities that Human Ecology has.
