Lynn Witherspoon

Senior Director of Development, Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering

North Hall 103B

Lynn is responsible for raising funds for Seaver College, aligning the philanthropic interests of alumni, parents and friends of the university with fund raising priorities established by Dean Tina Choe.

In her role as Senior Director of Development, Lynn visits alumni around the country, both in one-on-one meetings and at events large and small.  These activities are designed to share news of Seaver College’s initiatives and programs while fostering a sense of community among the college’s constituencies.

Lynn has enormous respect for the role philanthropy plays in the world; she finds her work greatly fulfilling.  Whether facilitating donors’ generosity as they establish scholarships or donate to new buildings, Lynn witnesses first-hand that generosity changes the trajectory of students’ lives for the better.

Raising funds to further higher education has defined Lynn’s career.  She has worked for her alma mater, UCLA, and for the University of Chicago.  She enjoys reading, writing (is currently working on her first book), traveling, and spending time with her son, now a young adult with a life and career of his own!
