New Library People

Introducing Julie Sully - Director of Development

Julie Sully -
Director of Development

The Library has recruited a new Director of Development, Julie Sully, who began working in Geisel Library in August 2014. Some of you may have already met Julie, who attended our recent Dinner in the Library, and has been reaching out to Library friends and supporters, and UCSD alumni. Julie, who will work on behalf of the Library as well as other campus initiatives, replaces Barbara Brink, who retired last December.

"The Library is fortunate that Julie has chosen to continue her career at UC San Diego, where she will collaborate with me and others on fundraising initiatives to build and enhance the Library's world class collections, services, and facilities," said University Librarian Brian Schottlaender.

"I am honored to represent the Library and UC San Diego at this juncture in my career" said Sully. "There is a unique and exciting energy to the campus, and the Library most certainly reflects that energy, and also has a rich history of its own. As the Library continues to transform itself in the digital age, there is a compelling story to tell and many opportunities to become involved in supporting its continuing growth and success."

Julie comes to us from our sister campus, UC Irvine, where she worked in a variety of capacities over the last three decades. After graduating from UC Irvine with a B.A. in Psychology, Julie started her career at the UCI Merage School of Business, and spent 14 years in MBA admissions, student services, and alumni relations. Since 2000, Julie has directed both marketing and development efforts for the UCI Libraries. In those roles, she successfully raised major gifts to support collection endowments, capital projects, and archival materials; oversaw the Partners of the UCI Libraries and Honor with Books annual giving programs; created Libraries-wide strategic communications plans; and managed Libraries-wide events.

Julie and her family have many ties to the University of California. Her husband Randy worked at UC Irvine and UC Riverside for many years, her older daughter Alaina is a nurse at UCLA, and her younger daughter Leah graduated from UC Santa Barbara in June.
