Following a national search, the Ford School is delighted to announce the appointment of Sue Johnson as director of development.

Johnson spent 16 years in development leadership positions at the University of Michigan’s Law School, Rackham Graduate School, and Museum of Art (UMMA). For the last ten years, she has led fundraising efforts for the Emerson School, a private school in Ann Arbor.

Johnson will join the Ford School’s development staff on February 9, and will lead the School’s Next Century campaign fundraising efforts for student support, game-changing faculty research, and policy engagement.
