(05/07/20) BATON ROUGE, La. — Tracy Evans has been named senior director of development for the LSU AgCenter, College of Agriculture and School of Veterinary Medicine.
She replaces Lindsey Fussell, who is now senior director of development for the E.J. Ourso College of Business.
Evans will oversee philanthropic planning and staff for the three units, which are part of a new fundraising “cohort” established by the LSU Foundation.
“There is a natural connection between the teams and so much opportunity for collaboration,” Evans said.
Evans spent the past decade working in development roles for the LSU Law Center and Vet School, raising more than $32 million in gifts. She previously was director of career services and coordinator of the Center of Continuing Professional Development at the law school.
“I have worked for LSU for 27 years, so I feel like I’ve pretty much grown up at LSU,” Evans said.
Evans holds a bachelor’s degree in interpersonal and public communications from the University of Southwestern Louisiana and a master’s degree in public administration from LSU.
“I have a deep appreciation for what the AgCenter and College of Agriculture do for our great state of Louisiana, and I look forward to meeting the wonderful faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and donors that make LSU Ag a true gem for the university,” she said. “I will work hard with our dynamic development team to move the mission and vision of all three units forward through philanthropy.”
