University of Chicago Appoints Executive Director of Alumni Association

The University of Chicago has appointed Christine Love as the Executive Director of the Alumni Association. She begins Jan. 1.

As Executive Director, Love is responsible for planning, managing, and evaluating services and

programs of the Alumni Association office, and maintaining communication and promoting goodwill between the University and more than 100,000 alumni worldwide.

“I am pleased to welcome Chris Love to the University,” said Randy Holgate, Vice President for Development & Alumni Relations. “She has led a nationally recognized program at Brown University serving 65,000 alumni worldwide. The depth of her experience in alumni relations and related areas will enrich our program.”

Love replaces Acting Executive Director Mary Ruth Yoe, who will return to being the full-time editor of the University of Chicago Magazine.

Love, the assistant vice president for alumni relations at Brown University since 1989, has 17 years experience working in admissions, annual funds and alumni relations. At Brown, she initiated alumni public service programs, oversaw development of an alumni web site and of on-line discussion courses for alumni, and strengthened ties between alumni and the admissions, development and career planning offices. Brown’s overall alumni program earned a Grand Gold Medal from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education in 1993.

Love began her career at Brown University in 1970 as an admissions officer, and later held appointments as associate director of alumni relations and associate director of Brown’s Annual Fund prior to her 1989 appointment as assistant vice president. Love has also worked as a librarian at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and as director of the Middletown Public Library in Middletown, R.I.

Love received her B.A. from Brown in 1970 and her M.S. in 1974 from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
