Kristina Gulick Schaefer joined MIT Sloan in January as associate dean for external relations. In her new role, Schaefer directs all of the School’s work and connections with alumni, including the planning of events like last spring’s Alumni Weekend 2011.

“We want to increase the engagement of MIT Sloan alumni back with the School,” Schaefer said. “I’d like to see it as a lifelong engagement, not just their time on campus as students. Having nearly 2,000 of our alumni and friends return last May shows how robust our community is. I know that connection can be even stronger.”

“The intellectual environment here is striking,” Schaefer said, noting her first meetings with alumni left her “incredibly impressed with their passion for the place.” She said, as well, that she is excited to work with the School’s alumni around the world.

With the School’s $142 million new building complete and open for business, alumni will see MIT Sloan fundraising efforts shift to emphasize support for faculty and students, Schaefer said.
