He comes to the Law School from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., where he served as associate chair for philanthropic support at the Mayo Foundation. He was responsible for all fund-raising programming for the entire clinic.

Prior to that, Baily worked for the U-M Office of Development from 1988-2000, and was director of principal gifts at the time he went to Mayo. Baily began his fund-raising career at Vanderbilt University.

"Private philanthropic support of the Law School is essential to its ongoing success, given both its ambitious plans for providing legal education of unsurpassed quality and also the steadily declining state support for public schools," says Evan Caminker, dean of the Law School. "Todd Baily has the skill, experience and energy to help secure the financial resources necessary for the school to remain one of the truly outstanding law schools in the world."

Margaret Leary, director of the Law Library and chair of the search committee for the deanship, says, "Todd Baily brings extraordinary experience and professional qualifications to the Law School. Twelve years right here at Michigan—and then four at the Mayo Foundation, with increasingly broad responsibilities, while he continued to manage a substantial portfolio of his own—mean that he can quickly get up to speed."

Leary also notes that "his management style, and his plans to mentor and grow the staff, build a strong base in the Law School Fund, conduct a successful campaign, and integrate his unit into the Law School match what the search committee sought."
