Communications & Marketing, LIU,
LIU has named Michael S. Glickman (’99 B.A. and ’01 M.A.) chief of strategic partnerships and university advancement effective June 1. In this role, Glickman will work with university leadership on the structure, programming, and fundraising for university centers and institutes. In addition, he will provide leadership and direction for LIU’s development and advancement efforts, including alumni relations and fundraising.
“It is a great privilege to return to my alma mater in this new role,” said Glickman. “LIU is a remarkable institution, and I look forward to supporting the university’s efforts as it enhances opportunities in higher learning for students, faculty, and staff.”
Glickman joins LIU following almost a decade leading the Center for Jewish History in New York City, a research and cultural institution that serves almost 100,000 visitors each year. The institution is comprised of five historical organizations that provide access to the largest and most significant archival collection of Jewish history in the world–including more than 100 million archival documents and 500,000 volumes–through a shared library. During his tenure, Glickman secured nearly $100 million in philanthropic and government support for the center, helping the institution grow into a major destination for researchers and members of the public. Before running the Center for Jewish History, he held a number of leadership roles throughout the organization from 2002-2005, and prior to that, worked in media relations for a New York City governmental agency. He also directed the alumni affairs program at LIU Post from 1999-2001.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michael back to LIU,” said Dr. Kimberly R. Cline, president of LIU. “He comes to us with valuable experience, and we know he will make an excellent leader for the university.”
Glickman received a master’s degree in public administration from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, as well as master’s and bachelor’s degrees in political science from LIU.
