Welcome Julie Bressor 
Director of Annual Giving & Alumni Relations

Julie Bressor joined the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock as Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations in early January 2016.

In this role, Julie will develop and implement a fundraising strategy for annual giving across the Medical School and Dartmouth-Hitchcock, including the Fund for Geisel, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Annual Fund, the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Working closely with alumni leadership, she will direct efforts to maximize alumni engagement and support for Geisel and Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

“I am happy to have joined the Medical School at a time when it is considering its strategic goals,” says Julie. “Alumni play such a critical role in the life of the School, and I’m looking forward to working closely with our alumni to support excellence in teaching and research and, especially, the student experience. I will be out and about meeting alumni in the coming year and aim to improve alumni communications as well.” Julie invites alumni to contact her directly at Julie.P.Bressor@Dartmouth.edu or by phone at (603) 653-0742.

Julie comes to us from King’s College, University of Cambridge, where she served as Director of Development and a Fellow of the College. During her six years at King’s she built a robust alumni engagement program, increased giving from £1.5 million/year to £5.8 million/year, and increased both alumni and non-alumni participation in giving and involvement with the College. Previously, Julie worked in Development and Alumni Relations at Norwich University, where she held positions of increasing scope and responsibility over a period of more than 10 years, most recently as Associate Vice President. She has served on the boards of a number of Vermont organizations, including the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, Montpelier’s Kellogg Hubbard Library, and the Vermont State Chamber of Commerce.

Julie holds a BA in history from the University of Vermont and an MA from the University of Cambridge. She returns to Vermont to join her husband, James Bressor, a senior writer/editor in Dartmouth’s Advancement Division.
