In August we welcomed Matthew G. Dewey as associate vice president for marketing and communications. He comes via the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was senior director of marketing and communications and led an 11-person team that supported a planned $2.5 billion capital campaign.
Note that U of I is ranked No. 11 among public universities by U.S. News & World Report. Dewey hails from the Land of Lincoln originally and is an alumnus of the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business. He also captained the track and field team for the Fighting Irish and competed in shot put, discus, and hammer throw. At SCU, he helms work in media relations, social media, creative services, and digital properties. We at Santa Clara Magazine are part of his crew, too.
