LCWA is pleased to announce that effective immediately Brian Rowe will become the development officer assigned to the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs. Many of you know Brian, since he has already been providing support for LCWA fund raising projects. Now in his third year at the College of Charleston, Brian previously served as a Leadership Gift Officer on the Annual Giving Team and was aligned closely with LCWA and the School of Sciences and Mathematics. He has worked in non-profit fundraising for nearly 20 years having served organizations in Virginia, New Hampshire, Maryland, and South Carolina. He holds a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Charleston (WV) and an M.F.A. in Theatre Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. Hailing from a small town in rural Ohio, Brian now lives in West Ashley with his wife Megan, who is the College’s Director of Campus Housing, and Sage the Cat, who is the best cat in the world. Join me in welcoming Brian to the LCWA team.
Excerpt from the College TODAY, “Since the last German-American Business Summit (GABS) in February of 2020 a lot has happened at the College of Charleston, and we’re not just talking about the pandemic. Last fall, the College began offering its first-ever major in engineering – systems engineering – with some of the 200-plus German companies in the Palmetto state helping to design the curriculum.
“This year we are pivoting to a virtual event and are looking forward to the chance to cast a wider net in terms of audience participants, as well as panelists, who will join us from locations throughout the U.S. and in Germany,” says Morgan Koerner, the chair of the Department of German and Russian Studies who founded the event.”
