“I am most excited to match the priorities of the School’s needs with the charitable giving interests of our philanthropic partners and to continue the excellence for which the School is known”

James Kelley is the School of Nursing’s new associate dean for development and alumni relations, a role crucial to the continuing success of educating tomorrow’s nursing leaders.

His early focus is to advance the School’s three critical and strategic development priorities:  increasing the level of financial aid to students, securing funding for the School of Nursing’s new building addition, and supporting the work of the School’s mission-driven centers and projects.

“I look forward to working with Jamie to build the partnerships—throughout the School, the University, and with our current and future friends and donors. These partnerships will ensure we realize the philanthropic support essential to meeting our development priorities,” says School of Nursing dean Martha Hill, PhD, RN.

Kelley joined the School on September 19 after nearly five years of leading the Hopkins School of Medicine Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery as the director of development.  During his tenure he successfully generated financial support for the Department, including significant philanthropic contributions to establish new endowed chairs and numerous mission-oriented gifts that addressed major areas of need.

Kelley is a graduate of The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University and plays drums in many popular groups in the Baltimore area. He is an active volunteer and fund raiser in his South Baltimore community and was instrumental in creating not only a dog park in central Baltimore, but also in helping formulate policies that opened more park-like areas to city dogs.

Kelley can be reached at 410-614-0877 or [email protected].
