Erin Minné, senior vice president for Advancement, will step down from that position at the close of the fiscal year, President A. Gabriel Esteban, Ph.D., announced today. Minné joined DePaul in 2014 to lead fundraising and engage alumni, family and friends to build affinity.
"After a challenging year marked by family loss, Erin has decided to step down so that she can address family responsibilities and take some time to reflect and re-energize," Dr. Esteban says. "It is with understanding and sincere thanks for her many contributions to our university that we wish her well in the months and years ahead."
Minné earned her bachelor's degree from Oakland University in Rochester, Mich., and her master's degree in philanthropy and development from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. Immediately prior to accepting the role at DePaul, she served as vice president for university advancement at Illinois State University and executive director of the ISU Foundation, the non-profit organization that accepts and manages gifts to ISU.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to have served DePaul University alongside you," Minné said in announcing the decision to colleagues. "It has been a privilege to witness your generosity and your commitment to our Vincentian values."
The next leader for Advancement will be named at a later date.
