        In naming Deetz the Foundation’s permanent director, VU President Chuck Johnson said the dual role that Deetz will now serve is the next step in a renewed relationship between the University and the VU Foundation.  He says he looks forward to working with Deetz to build on successful fundraising initiatives to enhance student success, college attainment and the reputation and strength of the university.
