Marc Broderick, senior associate vice president for institutional advancement at Temple University in Philadelphia, has been named Mason’s new vice president for university development and alumni affairs. He is expected to begin working at Mason in early October.

Broderick brings 13 years of experience to Mason as a development and alumni affairs professional.

Broderick joined Temple University in 2002 initially to coordinate development and alumni affairs across the university’s 14 schools and colleges. His role has expanded throughout the past five years to include fund raising for the Temple Health System, library system, athletics and press, radio and school partnership programs.

Additionally, he oversees the central development functions of corporate and foundation relations, planned giving, annual fund and advancement services. He manages a central development staff of 20 people that includes annual fund, stewardship, research, gift processing, database operations and technology staffs.

“Broderick brings to Mason an innovative and insightful approach to development and alumni relations strategy, programs and training,” says President Alan Merten. “His background and experience directing numerous capital campaigns and providing strategic planning and management of centralized development functions and school- and college-based development and alumni affairs are vital to the university’s overall success.”

Prior to joining Temple University, Broderick was director of development at Goizueta Business School at Emory University in Atlanta. Broderick identified, cultivated, solicited and directed stewardship for all major donors and managed a campaign in which volunteers solicited donors.

Other highlights of his career include serving as the director of development for the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University and associate director of corporate and foundation relations at the George Washington University.

Broderick earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and criminal justice from the George Washington University in 1993.
