UI Foundation Hires Fund Raiser For UI College Of Public Health

The University of Iowa Foundation has hired Scott Ford as the new director of development for the UI College of Public Health.

Prior to coming to the UI Foundation, Ford was director of public use at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Prairie City, Iowa, from 2003 to 2006, and at Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Bloomington, Minn., from 2000 to 2003. From 1990 to 2000 he was the program coordinator for visitor services at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Coralville (Iowa) Lake Project Office.

For seven years before his Coralville Lake assignment, Ford was a park ranger for the U.S. National Park Service, working at sites in Iowa, Missouri and Indiana. Ford earned a bachelor's degree in journalism with an emphasis in religious studies and philosophy from Marycrest College in 1985.
