So Who Wants Some “Cookies and Cream”?

You know, the ice cream flavor that regularly is voted as a favorite flavor of ice cream lovers everywhere.

Do you know where this ice cream flavor was created?  The University Dairy at South Dakota State University, in Brookings.  This is only one of the fun reasons that effective advancement professionals should consider one of the new Director of Development positions the SDSU Foundation has open.

Three positions – in the College of Education and Human Sciences, the College of Nursing, and the Division of Student Affairs – are available.  And making the move to SDSU is attractive for more reasons than ice cream!

  • Fundraising efforts at SDSU have been hugely successful in recent years – $220 million raised to date on a campaign goal of $200 million!
  • Brookings is the fourth largest city in the state (and growing).  It is considered one of the friendliest and highest quality of life places to live in the Midwest.
  • The SDSU Foundation is growing, the salaries for these positions are competitive, and the University leadership is committed to expanding the role of philanthropy at the University in the future.

If you know of any professional who has an interest in one (or more) of these positions, please contact me directly at  I am happy to talk with anyone who is seeking a fulfilling position with a University and community on the move!
