Loyola welcomes new assistant dean for advancement

Thanh Hoang joined Loyola Law School in August 2013 as its new assistant dean for advancement. A veteran fundraiser for institutions dedicated to higher education and social services, Hoang has clear objectives for her return to academia.

 “My goal is to create a strong culture of philanthropy at the Law School that will provide the necessary resources for our students and faculty,” Hoang said.

“Thanh brings experience, high energy and intelligence to one of the most important jobs at Loyola Law School,” said Dean Victor Gold. “There is a reason why the department she now leads is called Advancement—our ability to progress as an institution depends on the financial support of our alumni and other friends.”

To promote these development efforts, Hoang will enlist Loyola alumni and friends to support future generations of students. “In my first month at Loyola, I’ve seen how loyal our alumni are to the school and the overwhelming sense of pride that they share,” she said. Hoang has high hopes to foster and strengthen this environment of camaraderie in her new role.

Prior to joining Loyola, Hoang was vice president of development at the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles. She brings with her considerable experience in higher education. She has held a number of fundraising positions, including gift planning, major gifts, annual giving and phonathons at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, Occidental College and the University of California, Irvine.

A Los Angeles native, Hoang was raised in Santa Monica and received her bachelor’s degree with honors from the University of California, Irvine. She also holds an MBA from the University of California, Los Angeles Anderson School of Management.

She encourages alumni and friends of the school to contact her at thanh.hoang@lls.edu or at 213.736.1025 should they have questions or want more information about ways to give to Loyola Law School.
