Advancement administrator Baronio leaving

Monday, July 9, 2012

President V. Lane RawlinsDear UNT community,

On Friday, Vice President for Advancement and Director of Development for the UNT Foundation Lisa Baronio notified me that she has accepted a new position as vice president for alumni relations and development at Trinity University in San Antonio. Her last day at UNT will be Aug. 7.

I appreciate Ms. Baronio’s leadership these past two years during a period of reorganization and growth for our development program. Under her leadership, UNT has: Lisa Baronio, vice president for advancement

  • Restructured the fundraising organization for better productivity, with the hiring of more development officers, stronger employee performance measures and improvements to its business infrastructure, including a major conversion of the old constituent relations database to a more advanced system.
  • Strengthened the university’s culture of philanthropy by training administrators about fundraising and stewardship.
  • Recruited 100 volunteers to raise gifts on behalf of the university and serve on more than 15 campaign committees in preparation for a national fundraising campaign
  • Increased new gifts and commitments to the university.

Ms. Baronio leaves us with a passionate team of fundraisers who will keep momentum on our side. Our four bold goals — which ultimately are about creating the best educational experience for our students — signal to everyone that we are committed to helping our students succeed. These goals are proving to be a strong incentive for giving.

To ensure a seamless transition, before her departure I will have a plan in place to manage the development program in the interim, and we will move swiftly to identify the right person to lead us to even greater fundraising success. In the meantime, I have been very involved in strengthening UNT's fundraising culture, and I plan to invest even more of my time on this during the transition.

Please take the opportunity to wish Ms. Baronio well as she prepares for her new position and to thank her for her service to UNT.


V. Lane Rawlins
