Milkowski named MIAD VP for Development and Communications
The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) has named Tracy Milkowski vice president for development and communications.

Milkowski oversees MIAD’s fundraising strategy and programs that support the college’s strategic plan, which aims to ensure students’ equitable access to a MIAD education and launch creative professionals who transform our community. She manages major giving, annual giving and planned giving programs, and also oversees the college’s team that manages marketing, external communications, media relations, special events and social media.
Milkowski’s prior experience includes serving as vice president for advancement and external relations at Holy Family College, vice president for advancement at Marian University, and as a major gift officer and director of the Women’s Leadership Institute at Mount Mary University.
