Dewayne Neeley

With over 15 years of experience in higher education, I am passionate about connecting alumni and church communities with Greenville University's mission and vision. As the Director of Alumni & Church Relations, I oversee developing and implementing strategic initiatives to foster meaningful relationships, increase philanthropic support, and enhance the university's reputation. I also serve as a Major Gift Officer, cultivating and soliciting donors for major and planned gifts. I leverage my skills in fundraising, alumni affairs, volunteer management, and program coordination to create and execute effective campaigns, events, and communications. I hold a Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Western Kentucky University, where I also worked as a Dual Credit Program Manager and Coordinator for 11 years. In this role, I managed the dual credit program's academic, administrative, and financial aspects, which offered college courses to high school students. I collaborated with faculty, staff, school districts, and state agencies to ensure the program's quality, compliance, and growth. I am committed to advancing the educational opportunities and outcomes for students of diverse backgrounds and interests and to serving the university and its stakeholders with excellence and integrity.
