Assistant Director of Development

Brady Subart aims to prioritize relationships with alumni and supporters of the college to further the mission of improving and enhancing human health and wellness

Brady Subart joins the College of Human Sciences (COHS) team as the assistant director of development. Subart will collaborate closely with alumni and donors to further the mission of the college through outreach initiatives and partnerships with community leaders. He will work in the External Relations Office alongside Johnny Fowler, director of development.

“We are so excited to add Brady to our Development and External Relations team in the College of Human Sciences,” Fowler said. “He brings a wealth of fundraising knowledge through his experience and will quickly be an impactful addition to support our initiatives. As we embark on Tech's second century, our team will remain committed to strengthening our donor relationships, and support the needs of Texas Tech University, Dean Dodd, our faculty and staff, and our students.”

Before moving to Lubbock, Subart worked for the Spokane Hoopfest Association in Spokane, WA, where he helped source and retain sponsorships from local, regional, and national partners for the World's Largest 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament. Since then, he has worked with the Texas Tech University Office of Advancement for over a year as a development associate for leadership annual giving. In that role, he supported annual giving initiatives for the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Human Sciences. Subart shares what drew him to this new position in the College of Human Sciences.

“The aspect of working with the College of Human Sciences which appealed to me the most was the plethora of subjects that are covered within the college,” Subart said. “Whether it is Interior Design, Nutritional Sciences, Personal Financial Planning, and everything in between, being able to learn about and experience different areas of human health and wellness creates an exciting and enriched work environment I look forward to being a part of every day.”

As assistant director of development, Subart will have the opportunity to bridge together the goals of donors and the values of the institution. A large part of this role includes prioritizing the relationships with individuals inside and outside the College of Human Sciences. Subart said he looks forward to connecting with the alumni and supporters who embody the COHS and its mission.

“Whether it is sending updates on their current gifts, or connecting donors with faculty and staff within their desired area of support, the various ways we can keep the college's supporters up to date not only strengthens the relationships between these respective parties, but also build trusts as we are able to exemplify how donor support is impacting the college currently and in perpetuity,” Subart said.

Over the next few years, the development team plans to continue building quality relationships that benefit the college and the university. Stubart said he is excited to learn more about the COHS departments and how his role can advance the goals of the institution.

“I am looking forward to building quality relationships with COHS faculty, staff, and supporters to build a cohesive line of communication to ensure the COHS Development team is best supporting the needs of our faculty and staff, while keeping alumni and donors informed on all the latest updates within the college and how they can best support these initiatives,” Subart said. “Additionally, a professional goal of mine would be to pursue a post graduate certificate in Charitable Planning from Texas Tech to solidify my standing as a Red Raider, and be better equipped with the variety of ways individuals and organizations can support their philanthropic goals at Tech.”
