Bloomfield College names Jacqueline Bartley-Oxley VP of Institutional Advancement

BLOOMFIELD – In a statement released today, Bloomfield College President Richard Levao announced the appointment of Jacqueline Bartley-Oxley, JD to the position of Vice President for Institutional Advancement at the private, liberal arts institution.

A seasoned fundraising professional, Bartley-Oxley has made a significant impact at several of New Jersey’s higher education institutions, including Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). The Middletown, N.J. resident comes to Bloomfield after a six-year stay at Monmouth University, where as Associate Vice President for Advancement, she played an integral role in a $20 million Capital Campaign to raise funding for the University’s new athletics facility, the Multipurpose Activity Center (MAC).

“We are delighted to have Jacqueline join Bloomfield College,” Levao said. “A national search brought several extremely qualified candidates to our attention, and her record of prior accomplishments in development, her enthusiasm and her personality made her a terrific choice for this position. We look forward to bringing the College and its remarkable accomplishments to its growing circle of friends and supporters, with Jacqueline’s help.”

Prior to Monmouth, Bartley-Oxley held various positions during a seven-year tenure at Rutgers, culminating with a two-year stint as Associate Vice President for Major Gifts from 2006-2007. As Director of Development for the Rutgers College of Nursing from 2000-2003, she helped raise $5 million to help the division construct a state-of-the-art facility on the New Brunswick campus. Also a member of the Gift Planning Council of New Jersey (GPCNJ), Bartley-Oxley has previously served as the organization’s President, chairing and co-chairing several conferences during her tenure.

A diverse institution in Bloomfield, N.J. that features a student body of 2,145 students, Bloomfield College has recently been named among the best National Liberal Arts Colleges in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 “Best Colleges” rankings. Offering over 60 majors and concentrations, the four-year institution will welcome a new state-of-the-art, 84,000-square-foot residence hall in the Summer of 2014, doubling the school’s on-campus resident population to nearly 600 students.

“Bloomfield College has an extraordinary history, and serving as Vice President for Institutional Advancement is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the growth of this great institution,” Bartley-Oxley said of the new role. “This College has an amazing story to tell, and I’m thrilled to be joining it at such an exciting time.”

A graduate of the Seton Hall University School of Law, Bartley-Oxley earned an undergraduate degree in political science and philosophy from Boston College. Currently living in Middletown, Bartley-Oxley is married to Joseph W. Oxley, and has a daughter, Margaux Jade.
