Department Profile (Specific Information about department/program):
Launched in 1979 under the auspices of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and located on the campus of the University of California Santa Barbara, the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) has emerged in the last 30 years as a model for facilitating productive and sustained scientific collaboration. Initially conceived principally as a national center for theoretical physics, the KITP has evolved a model for collaboration which routinely attracts the best scientists from the U.S. and around the world to formulate and to participate in its programming. Research conducted in conjunction with KITP programming has had a greater effect on other researchers than research conducted anywhere else. (The study focused on science research facilities, including mathematics and the engineering fields, but excluding biomedical science.) To learn more, visit www.kitp.ucsb.edu.

Works personally with top donor prospects and supports the KITP Director and faculty in top prospect relationships, in order to maximize philanthropic support for the KITP and UCSB, raising gifts to meet identified fund raising priorities.
