Kaija Langley has recently been appointed to the position of Director of Development in the MIT Libraries. Langley will lead the Libraries’ fundraising efforts, working closely with the Libraries’ senior management team and MIT’s Resource Development staff to identify and develop funding opportunities in support of library priorities.
Prior to joining MIT, Langley served as Associate Director of Philanthropy at The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Boston. While at TNC she worked with major donors, and was involved in the critical mission of organizing fundraising efforts in the wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Before working at TNC, Langley worked as an Individual Gifts Officer at the Museum of Science in Boston for three years and, prior to that, as Community Outreach Specialist, and then Director of Development for Family Builders in Oakland, California.
“Kaija’s exceptional ability to build and develop positive, cooperative relationships as demonstrated in her work at TNC is noteworthy, as is her exposure to the exciting world of science in her years with the Museum of Science. She will bring great energy and enthusiasm to her role with MIT,” said Ann Wolpert, Director of Libraries.
