Next Vice Chancellor for University Development and Alumni Relations

Dear UCSF Community,

I am delighted to announce that Erin Hickey has been named Vice Chancellor for University Development and Alumni Relations.

During her 20-year fundraising career, Erin has secured millions of dollars in commitments from some of the nation’s top donors in philanthropy and was part of the team that raised $6.2 billion during UCSF: The Campaign – the largest capital campaign in UCSF’s history.

With a passion and commitment for UCSF’s public mission, Erin is well positioned to lead fundraising efforts to support our highest priorities – the transformation of our Parnassus Heights campus and the rebuild of the Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland.

Please join me in congratulating Erin on this well-deserved appointment. You can read more about her story on
