Nuvyn's Story

Nuvyn is a passionate community leader and seasoned executive with a track record of achievements in development, donor engagement and capital campaigns. Prior to joining the University of Calgary, Nuvyn was a senior executive at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where she managed Georgetown’s $1.5 billion campaign.

Nuvyn first earned her reputation as a philanthropic leader as Development Director of the Tahirih Justice Center where she advocated for the rights of vulnerable women and girls.  Through subsequent leadership positions, Nuvyn continues to be an influential leader in the philanthropic community, working with donors and organizations throughout North America. 

Nuvyn holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Saskatchewan, and a Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution from Landegg International University in Switzerland.  An innovative and empathetic leader, Nuvyn was named one of Canada's top newsmakers of the week by Maclean's magazine, and is a recipient of Avenue magazine’s “Top 40 Under 40” (2016) and Canada’s “Top 40 Under 40” (2018).   

As vice-president at UCalgary, Nuvyn’s unique vision to develop a culture of lifelong philanthropic engagement not only sustains and enhances the university’s mission but has propelled it to become one of the top fundraising institutions in Canada.
