Blume has been the assistant dean for Mission Advancement & Engagement at UW’s Evans School of Public Policy & Governance for more than seven years.

She led the school’s $50 million campaign focused on increasing student access through scholarships and a $25 million remodel of the school’s historic 1902 building. A UW alumnus, Blume received her master’s in public administration from the school in 2010.

“I’m excited to join the UW Bothell team and look forward to contributing to the important work being done to increase student access to an amazing UW educational experience,” she said “It will be an honor to join Chancellor Esterberg and the Advancement team as we — together — continue telling UW Bothell’s unique story, inspire private support and build upon the strong sense of community among alumni and partners.”
