Mark Bagley, director of development for the University of La Verne for the past three years, will be leaving La Verne this month for a similar position at Western Washington University (WWU).

Bagley will be the director of annual giving at WWU.

“It’s difficult to leave after nine years because La Verne has meant so much to me,” Bagley said. “But at the same time, it’s exciting to have another opportunity, face the challenges of a new job and the excitement of living in another state.”

His wife Annette, who teaches at ULV, and their 17-month-old daughter Alexis are excited for the move. “Annette is originally from Washington, so she is happy to get back to her home state,” he said.

Bagley graduated from ULV in 1988 as a journalism major.

His positions at the University in the past nine years include working in University Relations. He also has been the sports information director for the past two years.

At Western Washington, he will oversee the Phon-A-Thon, the Parents Program, the President’s club, which is donors at the $1,000 level and other general fundraising responsibilities. He will perform lot of similar duties which he performed at ULV. The only duty he will not be doing in Washington is event planning.

His last day at ULV will be Dec. 31. He will move to Washington in January and he begins at WWU on Feb. 2.

Bagley said “being able to interact with alumni on a daily basis and the chance to meet all the wonderful people I have worked with over the years,” are some fond memories that he will look back on.
