Steve Varley has been appointed Director of Development and Alumnae/i Affairs at the Yale School of Nursing.
As Director, Varley supports the engagement of alumnae/i and friends in the work of advancing YSN. In addition to his involvement with the External Advisory Board and the YSN Alumnae/i Association, Varley supports YSN Dean Grey as she works to address the critical need for financial aid. "What really bothers me is that I don't want any person who could enroll at YSN, and later become a nurse-leader for the next generation, to be deterred by the cost," stated Varley. "Financial aid is a huge part of the enrollment equation."
Varley has an extensive background in development and alumni relations. Most recently, he served as the Vice President for Advancement at Gardner-Webb University, located in western North Carolina. While at Gardner-Webb, he designed and led the university's comprehensive campaign, Higher Ground.
