Linda Carey Halverson, Senior Program Officer
Grants Management & Technology
Linda builds important relationships with grantees as a program officer and is is also responsible for assuring that foundation grant making produces positive, sustainable and measurable results through best-practice grant management and the technology that drives the foundation’s business processes.
Linda brings over 30 years of experience in higher education technology operations and business process development. Previously associate vice president for administration at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, she was responsible for managing nonacademic administrative operations and organization development. Before St. Thomas, Linda spent countless employment hours at Michigan State University, in Michigan patent and probate law firms and in a Michigan health care setting.
A Detroit native, Linda moved to Minnesota with her husband too many years ago to count. She graduated summa cum laude from the College of St. Catherine in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and received the Abigail Quigley McCarthy leadership award. She earned master’s and doctorate degrees in organization development from the University of St. Thomas and completed pre- and postdoctoral studies at Bryn Mawr and the University of Michigan. She lives in Shoreview, Minnesota, with her golden-pyrenese, Parker and some sort of a Australian cattle dog mix, named Finnegan. She has two grown children and three grandchildren, for whom she creates and directs their annual Gramma Cammp© (no that is not a typo).
