Rapisarda Leaves Alumni Relations

Dr. Martin Rapisarda, director of alumni relations since November 1998, has left the University to become assistant dean for executive MBA programs at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management. His wife, Elizabeth, has also left her position as director of strategic corporate and foundation initiatives for a similar position at Vanderbilt.
  Virginia Clark, vice president of development and alumni relations, praised the “vital contributions” of the Rapisardas, adding: “Martin’s leadership in building alumni relations’ on-line community and extending AR’s outreach through the Global Alumni Network have moved Penn forward in realizing its new model for alumni involvement in the 21st century.”
  A national search for his successor is under way. Marilyn Lucas, executive director of medical center development and alumni relations, has been appointed interim director.
