The Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law has appointed Margaret A. King as associate dean for institutional advancement.

She will oversee and coordinate all areas of development, grants and alumni relations, including major gifts, annual giving and alumni activities.

“Ms. King has exactly the right combination of experience, energy and vision we need,” stated Interim Dean Robert A. Destro. “She is an excellent manager and a superb development professional. We are proud that the Columbus School of Law has served for over 100 years as a gateway to the legal profession for deserving students of limited means. We intend to expand our outreach efforts and are thrilled to have someone of Margaret’s caliber heading up our development team.”

Ms. King is a 1980 alumna of Catholic University and currently is seeking a master’s degree in public administration from Columbia University.

Before joining Columbia’s law school development team, Ms. King conducted successful fund-raising campaigns at The Mercy Hospital Foundation, the Stevens Institute of Technology and Fordham University.
