| BOSTON – Christopher S. Mosher, J.D., who has led philanthropic efforts in a variety of academic and medical settings, has been appointed vice president for Advancement at Suffolk University.
Mosher, a graduate of Suffolk University Law School, has worked for two decades leading philanthropic and advancement programs at Boston-area institutions. He has served as director of development at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he helped plan and execute that institution’s largest and most ambitious capital campaign. He also has directed fundraising efforts at Northeastern University, where he held a number of leadership positions in both institutional advancement and public affairs. Most recently, Mosher was vice president of Development at Mount Ida College in Newton.
“Chris is an outstanding fundraiser and communicator, who combines extensive experience at major Boston-area non-profit and educational institutions with a deep connection to Suffolk University,” said Suffolk University President David J. Sargent. “As a graduate of the Law School, he brings a strong commitment to Suffolk’s mission of access and opportunity and to fostering the growth of the University.”
Mosher comes to Suffolk during a period of sustained growth at the University. Suffolk’s fourth residence hall is under construction, and plans for a new academic building are on the drawing board.
“The opportunity to play a leadership role in Suffolk University’s advancement program is the opportunity of a lifetime for me,” Mosher said. “The legal education I received here has made all the difference in my professional life.
“I believe in the mission of Suffolk University,” Mosher said. “I believe in the idea of providing access to high-quality education to those who otherwise might not have the ability to afford it. As Suffolk continues to grow and mature, philanthropic support becomes more important than ever.”
