Vice Chancellor for Advancement Transition
Change is one constant that large organizations must endure and manage on a regular basis. We are writing today to announce the resignation of Jeff Nearhoof, UIC’s Vice Chancellor for Advancement and UIF’s Senior Vice President of Development, effective at the close of business on December 31, 2018. Jeff has accepted an offer to serve as a Senior Vice President with the Chicago-based International Philanthropy consulting firm, Grenzebach Glier and Associates.
Over the past 5 years Jeff has made significant contributions to UIC’s advancement efforts. He has built a strong organization, he has designed and launched a new capital campaign and he has overseen the creation and the initial efforts of the new UIC alumni association. Please join us in wishing him well as he embarks on a new phase of his career, and in thanking him for his service to the University of Illinois at Chicago and the UI Foundation.
Jeff will continue to lead the UIC advancement team until he transitions at the end of December. A search for a new Vice Chancellor/Senior Vice President will commence immediately and more information regarding interim leadership will be forthcoming.

President and CEO of the University of Illinois Foundation
