Fritz Schroeder to Head Alumni Relations
at Johns Hopkins

Fritz Schroeder, director of annual giving at The Johns Hopkins University, has been appointed to lead the university's alumni relations program as well. His new title will be executive director of alumni relations and annual programs.

"Fritz Schroeder is a natural choice to direct alumni relations," said Robert R. Lindgren, vice president for development and alumni relations. "During his four years as director of annual giving, he has shown a remarkable understanding of our alumni and an outstanding ability to motivate both staff and volunteers.

"Fritz's leadership will benefit both offices, each of which plays a crucial role with our alumni," Lindgren said.

Schroeder will manage an alumni relations staff of 14 focusing on activities and services for the nearly 100,000 alumni of the university's eight schools. The office also organizes programs for faculty, students, parents and friends of the university. There are 40 regional alumni chapters in 24 states and Washington, D.C., and in France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan. The staff also coordinates the 140-member Alumni Council, the governing body of the Alumni Association, which represents all of the academic divisions.

The Office of Annual Giving, which Schroeder will continue to direct, has a staff of 20 that coordinates annual giving efforts for the schools and for Johns Hopkins Medicine. The office also manages the Hopkins Fund, the annual giving effort of the university's arts and sciences and engineering schools.

Before joining Johns Hopkins in 1996, Schroeder worked at the University of Maryland, College Park, in development and alumni relations. He is a frequent faculty member for seminars sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

A 1989 graduate of James Madison University, Schroeder earned an M.B.A. in marketing from the University of Maryland, College Park.

In the alumni office, Schroeder succeeds Erv Sekulow, a 1959 Hopkins graduate who stepped down in December after 24 years as a senior member of the uiversity's development and alumni relations staff.
