Dulian brings 15 years of leadership experience in fundraising, a CFRE professional credential (Certified Fundraising Executive), a masters in nonprofit management from Regis University, and a bachelors in communication from the University of Colorado, Boulder. In 2022 she was recognized as a Top 40 Under 40 by the Alaska Journal of Commerce.
Most recently, Dulian served as the director of development for the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), an UArctic member institution. During her tenure with UAF she led the team through an eight-year period of rapid growth and change which resulted in a nearly 100% increase in philanthropic investments. In addition to being an accomplished leader, Dulian is honored to work side-by-side with benefactors in structuring transformational philanthropic investments. She looks forward to serving in a similar capacity for UArctic.
Beyond launching the international philanthropy program and leading the giving team for UArctic, Dulian will also serve as the executive director for the UArctic Foundation United States (UAFUS), a US based 501(c)3 to support the projects and activities of UArctic.
Dulian resides in Fairbanks, Alaska (lat. 65) with her husband and three children. They live in a log home in the boreal forest and have first hand experience with the challenges facing the North - including the high cost of energy, aging infrastructure, melting permafrost, loss of fisheries, and increasing wildfires, among many others. Dulian is honored to be joining the UArctic team to help move its mission forward.
