Biographical history

In 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 follows the resignation of Development and Alumni Affairs Director Rudy Putns. Arnice Cadieux is appointed Executive Director of the new department. On August 1, 1990, following the disbandment of the Learning Resources Centre (July 1), the Media Centre joined the Department of Development, Alumni and Community Relations. John Kentner, Manager of the Centre, reported to Ian Marlatt, Director, Creative Services.Effective January 1, 1996, a realignment of responsibilities took place which affected the department of Development, Alumni and Community Relations. Arnice Cadieux relinquished her responsibilities for development and alumni to become Special Assistant to President Claude Lajeunesse. She retained her duties and title as Executive Director of Community Relations. Ian Marlatt, assistant director in DACR, became team leader with responsibility for day-to-day operations and reported to Ms. Cadieux. Cadieux also continued, on an interim basis, as Executive Director of Development, Alumni and Community Relations, until the appointment of an individual to take responsibility for Development and Alumni Services/Records. A further development in the realignment process occurred around this time. The graphic and photography functions of the Media Centre were formally consolidated within the Community Relations unit whereas the remaining audio-visual equipment functions were integrated into Computing and Communications Services. On May 1, 1996, Professor Bob Crow, from the School of Urban and Regional Planning, was appointed on a three-year secondment to the position of Executive Director, University Development. On July 4, 1996, Arnice Cadieux resigned her position with the University. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that Community Relations and Development/Alumni Affairs would be "re-integrated", following the brief separation occasioned by the realignment of January. Ian Marlatt was appointed director of communications within the re–integrated department and reported to Bob Crow. A new, more concise name was sought for the department of Development, Alumni and Community Relations. In December, 1996, the name of the Office of Development, Alumni and Community Relations was changed to University Advancement Office. In 2013 University Advancement changed again with the creation of a separate Department of Communication, Government, and Community Engagement. University Advancement continues, its mission to develop and foster positive relations with our internal and external partners; to enhance Ryerson's image and profile in the broader community; and to increase the financial and material resources of the university through an integrated program of communications, fundraising and service to alumni and friends of Ryerson. It is made up of two departments - Alumni Relations, and Development.
