Drew Chelosky brings more than 15 years of experience in development and alumni relations to WT. His background is a classic mosaic of nonprofit experience in education and the Pittsburgh community—beginning with his alma mater, Washington & Jefferson College, where he honed his skills working in the college’s admission office, alumni relations office, development program, and later the Alumni Executive Council. From there Chelosky worked in leadership development roles at Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh (including the School of Law), and most recently he served as the Assistant Dean for Development at the Eberly College of Arts & Sciences at West Virginia University.
In the community, Chelosky was elected President of the Pittsburgh Planned Giving Council, ex officio board member of the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, and committee leader for the American Bar Association, American Association of Law Schools, and Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
At the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Law, Chelosky led his team through the completion of a $50 million campaign, and at West Virginia University he helped to transform the development program by extending Eberly College’s fundraising goal from $55 million to $84 million.
“I am honored to be part of such a strong community—parents, alumnae/i, faculty, and staff—who are deeply committed to WT’s mission. It is our combined efforts that ensure that each student is engaged in a challenging and inspiring learning environment,” notes Chelosky. “I’m eager to connect with our constituents to play my part in fulfilling this mission.”
