Jeffrey Howard has been named executive director of alumni relations at the University of Denver. He joined DU in the fall from the U.S. Olympic Committee, where he worked as the director of education and outreach programs in corporate communications.

Howard returns to DU after nearly a decade; he previously was assistant athletics director for public relations, coordinating media relations during DU’s transition to Division I athletics and the construction of the Ritchie Center.

“Returning to DU in a capacity to help further engage the University’s alumni and advocate for the many great programs and initiatives under way on and off campus is a great personal and professional opportunity,” Howard says. “I am a believer in lifelong learning, and the chance to return to an environment that fosters that philosophy at such a high level is exciting. I am truly proud to join a staff and campus community that inspires excellence in so many different areas of focus.”

Howard brings extensive experience in project management, marketing and public relations to his new role at DU. During his time with the U.S. Olympic Committee, Howard oversaw significant programming in alumni relations, education and athlete career transition services. His experience also includes coordinating programming and publicity both internally and externally. Howard graduated from Metropolitan State College in Denver with a bachelor of science in sports information and reporting. He holds a master’s degree in sports organization management from Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 in France. Howard is married to DU alumna Gerri Gomez-Howard (MA ’93), and the couple has three children.
