In Brief

Phillips named senior VP

Vice President for Investments Douglas W. Phillips has been named senior vice president for institutional resources.

Phillips retains his oversight of endowment management, but also will assume responsibilities for the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of major University donors. He will coordinate central administration resources in areas such as gift processing, prospect research, and planned giving.

"Doug Phillips's responsibilities in institutional advancement will dovetail nicely with his fiduciary role relating to University investments," said President Jackson. "We know that his attention to institutional advancement will be a significant complement to the activities of development officers across the University."

Phillips joined the University earlier in the academic year from Williams College, where he was treasurer.

MAG admission prices increase

The price of admission to the Memorial Art Gallery increased for the first time in seven years at the beginning of 2001.

The new prices are $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and college students with ID, and $2 for children age 6 to 18.

Free admission continues for MAG members, University students, and children age 5 and younger.

The new prices reflect rising costs of security, maintenance, and utilities.

Reduced admission on Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. remains $2, thanks to underwriting by the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle/Gannett Foundation and FleetBoston Financial Foundation with additional support from Monroe County.
