Arkansas makes Power's post permanent

Mark Power, the interim vice chancellor of University Advancement at the University of Arkansas (UA) since August, was recently told he has the position to keep.

Chancellor Joe Steinmetz cited Power’s successful 15-year tenure at the school when announcing the appointment. He highlighted Power’s involvement in a $1 billion fundraising campaign for UA.

“He has successfully cultivated hundreds of friends and volunteers, raised millions of dollars in private gift support, and developed a highly functioning staff during his time with the university,” Steinmetz said.

Power was named on the Arkansas Business list of “40 Under 40,” noting rising young professionals in the state. He also was named most outstanding fundraising executive in 2011 by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Northwest Arkansas Chapter.

“I have the privilege of working every day alongside an outstanding team of professionals and with amazing students, faculty, alumni and benefactors of the university,” Power said. “I look forward to enhancing those relationships as we continue to work to implement the guiding priorities for our campus, advance Campaign Arkansas and strengthen the University of Arkansas.”
