SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Greg Fields, philanthropy consultant and award-winning novelist, has been named acting director of the Bonnie and Bill Stubblefield Institute for Civil Political Communications at Shepherd University.
“I’m honored to play a role in the continuing emergence of the Stubblefield Institute for Civil Political Communications at Shepherd University,” Fields said of his appointment. “Given the volatile nature of the current political arena, the Institute’s work is vitally important in reauthoring public discourse based on logic, reason, and mutual respect. Its first two years have seeded programs that can change the way we look at the complex issues that surround us while triggering new avenues of civic engagement. Great things lie ahead.”
Fields is president of Philanthropy Directions International (PDI), a consulting firm that has worked with nonprofit clients and their donors across four continents. Prior to establishing PDI, he served as managing director for the Global Fund for Children, where he helped bring a small organization to its current posture as a multimillion-dollar international grant maker with distributions to groups in more than 45 countries.
