    Syracuse University is pleased to announce the appointment of a new staff member to serve the DC area. Maria Guarrera joined the University in the fall of 2015 as the newest member of the regional advancement team. She looks forward to working with Syracuse alumni, friends, and parents throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Following her time there, she relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada, and worked at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for more than five years. During that time she served as associate director of annual giving, working toward a $1.1 million dollar annual goal, and then moved into the College of Liberal Arts as director of development, raising major gifts for the institution.
