Stephanie Block has joined the Goizueta Development & Alumni Relations team as the senior director of alumni relations. Block comes to Emory from American University, where she was associate director of alumni relations in the School of International Service. Under her leadership, she led the School of International Service to earn the first-ever CASE Gold Circle of Excellence Award for the Most Innovative Alumni Relations Program.

Prior to her time there, she was assistant director in the Office of Alumni Affairs and Annual Giving for the University of Maryland’s School of Pharmacy, where she gained considerable experience in managing boards and volunteers and developing alumni engagement strategy. In addition to more than seven years in alumni relations, Block also has experience in media, public relations, and marketing. As manager of communications for the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University, she coordinated and promoted events, worked with admissions and enrollment teams to produce marketing collateral, wrote web copy and produced online media, created a social media presence for the school, and launched new branding guidelines. She recently completed a master’s in public administration from American University’s School of Public Affairs.

Block; her husband, Avram; and son, Harrison, are thrilled to call Atlanta their new home and are looking forward to exploring the metro area.

“I am energized to join the Goizueta team under Dean James’s leadership, which is truly paving the way and ‘Going Beyond’ in business higher education,” she says. “I look forward to contributing to the incredible work the school is doing to envision the future of business.”
