In 1985 the Alumni Affairs Office and the Private Funding Office merged to form the Office of Development. David Butler, Director of Alumni Affairs, became Assistant Director, Office of Development, and Bill MacPherson, Director of the Private Funding Office, became the new department's Director. In 1986, Bill MacPherson resigned and David Butler assumed the responsibility of interim Associate Director. In 1987, Rudy Putns was appointed as the new Director and, under his direction, the department was officially renamed Office of Development and Alumni Affairs. In June 1990 The Department of Development and Alumni Affairs was integrated with the Department of Community Relations to form the Department of Development, Alumni and Community Relations. This followed the resignation of Development and Alumni Affairs Director Rudy Putns. Arnice Cadieux was appointed Executive Director of the new department. On January 1, 1996, a realignment of responsibilities within Development, Alumni and Community Relations occurred with the appointment of Arnice Cadieux as Special Assistant to President Claude Lajeunesse. Ms. Cadieux retained her duties and title as Executive Director of Community Relations. The Community Relations and Development/Alumni units were briefly divided until they were again re-integrated as one department under the leadership of Bob Crow, who had been appointed Executive Director of University Development on May 1.
