Moyer to Steer Whiting School to $50 Million Initiative Goal
By Ken Keatley

Michael D. Moyer, director of regional development for the School
of Arts and Sciences since 1990, has been named director of
development and alumni relations for the Whiting School of
Engineering. He replaces Stephen Dare, who left Hopkins to become
director of development for endowment and capital programs at
Boston College.
     A 1979 graduate of Michigan's Kalamazoo College with a
bachelor of arts degree in English, Moyer, 37, also graduated in
1991 from Hopkins' School of Continuing Studies with a master of
liberal arts degree. He has worked in institutional advancement
at Hopkins since 1981, spending eight years on the annual fund
staff before becoming a major gifts officer in 1989.
     "I'm very pleased to be working with Dean Don Giddens and
helping implement his vision for the Whiting School of
Engineering," Moyer said.
     Moyer's first challenge will be to steer the school's
participation in the Johns Hopkins Initiative. The school has set
a fund-raising goal of $50 million--targeted for additional
professorships, student support, modernizing infrastructure and
new academic programs--for its campaign, titled "Designing for
Technological Leadership."
     "To continue our advancement into the top tier of
engineering schools, it is vital to have a significant
endowment," Moyer said. "With these challenges come
opportunities. It's an exciting time."
