Chris contributes fresh perspectives and a fun, but results-driven, approach to university advancement. He now serves as Annual Giving Officer at Morehouse College. Previously, he served as Manager of Alumni Relations at Queens College; Director of Alumni Relations at Teachers College, Columbia University; and as Director of Marketing at WHEA Inc.
