The first Development Officer was appointed in 1962, working under the Executive Secretary of the College. The Development Office became a separate department in 1970, and was renamed the Office of Development and Alumni Relations in 1992. The name was changed again in the fall of 1994 to the Office of Development and College Relations, which indicates not only the fund raising and alumni relations functions of the office, but also it's involvement in communications and public affairs. In 1998 the Vice President for Development and College Relations' title changed to Vice President for Planning and Development to reflect the office's increased role in institutional planning. The Office of Development and College Relations continues to report to the Vice President for Planning and Development. During the 2001-2002 academic year however, the Vice President for Planning and Development also became responsible for overseeing the Children's Center, Facilities Management, Security, and the Breckenridge Public Affairs Center.
