New Faces: Susan McLean, Director of Alumni and Donor Relations

Carolina Law welcomes the latest member of its advancement team, Susan McLean, the new director of alumni and donor relations. McLean has taken over the role from Louise Harris, who is now the new regional director of advancement.

McLean comes to Carolina Law with more than seven years of experience in alumni relations. In her role, she will oversee and manage alumni regional events and Law Alumni Weekend. In addition, McLean will oversee various stewardship events throughout the year, including the William Horn Battle Society Dinner and the Stewardship Luncheon.

"Susan is a wonderful addition to our team," said Kris Jensen, associate dean for advancement. "The program that Louise has built will continue to grow and progress under Susan’s leadership. I am excited for her to meet more of the Carolina Law family this year."

Carolina Law alumni can be found in all 50 states and in 18 countries, but McLean says she is eager to take on the opportunity to involve more alumni in law school activities. "In addition to planning events in our major alumni communities, I hope to make use of our online presence and community volunteers to encourage our alumni to stay connected and involved," says McLean.
