Anita Pariseau joined Colorado College as the new director of alumni relations on April 1. Previously, Pariseau was director of alumni relations and executive director of the alumni association at Colorado School of Mines for nine years. Prior to joining Mines, she worked in both Harvard’s and Wellesley’s alumni associations and also has worked in newspapers and advertising. In total, she brings more than 25 years of alumni relations experience to CC.
Vice President for Advancement Sean Pieri said Pariseau is a wonderful addition to the Colorado College family and the advancement team.
“She is the perfect fit for us as we look to expand our alumni programs and create an environment of lifelong connections between the college and our alumni. Her extensive experience and successful track record in alumni relations at three very distinguished institutions will greatly benefit the college as we look to build a world-class alumni relations program. I am delighted to welcome her to our team,” Pieri said. Pariseau has hit the ground running, meeting with the alumni board in her first 10 days and with other key individuals on campus. She considers her appointment “to serve alumni of this first-rate institution a once-in-a-lifetime privilege.”
