RyanBringing with him a higher education career spanning nearly 20 years, CASEY J. RYAN has joined USciences as director of alumni relations. Ryan comes to the University having served as assistant director of Penn Alumni Regional Clubs at University of Pennsylvania since 2009.

“I am delighted to be a part of such an amazing institution,” said Ryan. “I look forward to meeting and working with USciences alumni to continue and grow their relationship back to the University and their individual colleges.”

Ryan, who replaced Nancy Shils, will be responsible for planning and implementing initiatives that promote opportunities for USciences alumni to help advance the goals of the University. Because of his extensive background in alumni relations, Ryan will also be charged with securing commitments from alumni to provide professional expertise and volunteer service; organizing and executing events and other opportunities to bring alumni closer to the institution; and serving as a liaison between the University’s alumni association board of directors and the University’s academic and administrative leadership.

Aside from his time in alumni relations, Ryan spent half of his career in various marketing, communications, and administrative positions at Penn. His broad skillset allows him to personally interact with USciences alumni via technology available at his disposal.

“We are thrilled to welcome Casey to USciences, as his extensive background in collaborating with alumni boards, engaging volunteers, and planning events made him the perfect candidate to join our team,” said CARRIE COLLINS, JD, vice president of institutional advancement. “The search committee—comprised of alumni from several decades—wholeheartedly recommended him.”

Ryan earned his BA degree in linguistics from UPenn and had served as a member of many alumni relations and development committees there.
