Mike Mannausau, ’99, ’03


Vice President of Development
 

WHY I WEAR GREEN: That’s easy: the people. UND has a great academic tradition, athletic history, tremendous facilities that have all made a worldwide impact. But none of that compares to the type of people that UND produces and how those people feel about this special place.

Mike’s coaching background comes in handy in his leadership of the Strategic Fundraising Team. He strategically directs major gifts fundraising efforts, helping his team set and reach their goals. Mike works closely with Deans and other campus leaders to strategically prioritize and fulfill funding needs.

Hailing from International Falls, Minn., (aka “The Icebox of the Nation”), Mike spends his free time with his family, coaching youth hockey and football, hunting, and fishing.

Mike has served the UND Alumni Association & Foundation for nearly a decade, but has been on campus since 1994 – first as a student, then as a football coach before joining our team.

He led efforts to fundraise for and open the UND Athletics High Performance Center and played a big part in 2019’s record-breaking fundraising year. He’s enjoyed his front-row seat to witness the many people who make a difference on this campus through philanthropy.
