Heather Brust Joins Neeley as Development Director


Heather Brust has joined Neeley director of development. She previously served as the director of development for the College of Business Administration at the University of Texas at Arlington.  Prior to that, Heather served as a development officer in the College of Business at Washington State University. She began her development career at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Oregon Chapter. Heather earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon State University.

 "This is an exciting time to be a member of the TCU community and I am thrilled to partner closely with Dean Short and assist his efforts to advance the Neeley School," said Heather.

As the university prepares for its most ambitious comprehensive fund-raising campaign, the Neeley School looks to build support in strategic areas:

  •   Generous support from our alumni, friends and business community will allow Neeley to
      remain nationally competitive with faculty salaries. By creating additional endowed
      chairs and named professorships, TCU will be better positioned to retain and attract
      distinguished business educators. 
  •   Financial contributions to Neeley's Academic Centers of Excellence provide necessary
      funds to enhance the world class, real world experience taking place here on campus
      every day. The quality reputation produced by the Center's of Excellence further
      differentiates a Neeley School business education to other business programs in the U.S. and
      further elevates the academic profile of TCU.
