David A. Armstrong Named Vice President of Development

Notre Dame College President Dr. Andrew P. Roth has named David A. Armstrong, Esq., the College’s new vice president of development.

Armstrong, who has been with the College since 2003, served most recently as vice president for enrollment and general counsel, and directed all athletics, enrollment management, legal and student services functions. In his new role, his primary responsibilities will involve fundraising for the 2,200-student, 90-year-old College located in South Euclid, Ohio.

Armstrong brings extensive higher education experience to his new position. With degrees from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law (Cleveland State University) and Mercyhurst College (Erie, Pa.), he worked at Mercyhurst for over seven years in numerous positions, including working with disadvantaged students, as a planned giving officer, and director of alumni relations and annual fund. Prior to that, he was head football coach and athletic director at Thiel College (Greenville, Pa.) and director of athletics at Holy Name High School in Cleveland.

In announcing the appointment, Dr. Roth lauded Armstrong’s accomplishments in enrollment as he oversaw growth from 800 to 2,200 students in seven years.

“But while it is critically important that the College sustain its stunning enrollment successes of the last decade, enrollment can no longer be the College’s sole revenue source,” said Dr. Roth. “The College must develop multiple additional sources of revenue from both auxiliary enterprises and traditional fundraising, areas where Dave Armstrong will bring his talents and energy to bear.”

Along with his new role, Armstrong will continue as the College’s general counsel.

Armstrong, his wife Leslie, and their two children reside in Northfield Center, Ohio.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Brian Johnston, chief communications officer, at 216.373.5252 or bjohnston@ndc.edu.
