The LBJ School of Public Affairs announced Tuesday that Carolyn Miles Garber is its new director of development, a position that has been vacant for five years.

Garber will be in charge of the school’s fundraising efforts.

“I’m going to be building their development operation again,” Garber said.

The school is going to launch a new major donor program and revive a series of alumni donor and communication programs that have not been active in the last few years, she said.

She wouldn’t estimate how much money these new initiatives would raise.

“I could not be more pleased that [Garber] has agreed to join us as our director of development,” said LBJ School Dean Robert Hutchings in a statement Tuesday. “Her senior-level experience in development, together with her earlier work with public policy nonprofit organizations, makes her a perfect fit.”

Garber starts her new job on Nov. 29.
