C of I hires new Director of Corporate Relations
2011. 04. 04.
The College of Idaho has hired Tim Otter as its Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations. Otter, a former professor at C of I, joins the Office of Development, where he will write grants and help the College secure funding through foundations, corporations and other sources.
Otter comes to C of I from Crowley Davis Research, Inc. in Eagle, where he served as vice president of the life sciences department. He holds a bachelor's degree in aquatic biology from Brown University and a PhD in cell biology from the University of North Carolina. Prior to his work at Crowley Davis, Otter spent 15 years as a professor of biology at The College of Idaho.
“It's unusual to have a person in this position with extensive faculty experience,” Otter said. “But I want to use that to my advantage. I know the faculty and the history here at The College of Idaho, and I hope to put my years of teaching experience to use on the fundraising side so we can secure funding for important research and other programs our faculty and students are involved in.”
