As dean of Florida State University's College of Education, Marcy Driscoll is no stranger to conversations about giving. Since 2005, she has raised over $32 million in gifts and commitments with a consistent focus on student scholarships.

"I am proud to say that the College of Education has more scholarships than any other college on campus," she says, "and we offer more scholarship dollars than any other college of education in the state of Florida."

Dean Driscoll's success is due in equal parts to the fact that she has never asked anyone to do something that she is unwilling to do herself and her genuine enjoyment for development work.

"It has been one of my favorite parts of the job," she says. "We have very supportive alumni who care about FSU, and getting to know them and seeing them at events has been great fun."
