Nora Hennessy has been named Laboratory Schools executive director of alumni relations and development. She began Jan. 17 and replaces Alice DuBose, who has been working as interim director for two years.

Most recently, Ms. Hennessy worked at the University of Chicago as the Associate Dean and Director of the Development Division of the Humanities. Within this role, Ms. Hennessy worked with the dean to advance the activities of 200 faculty members and over 800 graduate students. She also oversaw $60 million in fundraising.

“All around Lab is evidence of learning. I am inspired by seeing the students and teachers in action,” Ms. Hennessy said. “The University of Chicago is also a remarkable place. Having worked here for several years, I am excited to get to now be a part of Lab and to help create new collaborations across campus that positively benefit students and teachers.”
