Sacred Heart University names new Horizons executive director

Jeffrey N. Rumpf recently joined Sacred Heart University as executive director of the Horizons Enrichment Program. Horizons is an educational outreach organization working with kindergarten to 12th grade students from low-income families.

In this role, Rumpf will be responsible for overseeing all Horizons activities and operations, including hiring and training program staff, developing and implementing fund-raising goals, overseeing academic programming for both Saturday and summer programs and broadening the organization’s base of support.

Most importantly, he will develop and enhance relationships between Sacred Heart and the students and their families who take part in the Horizons program. He will also develop relationships with Bridgeport public and parochial schools and other community organizations.

“I’m most looking forward to working with the kids,” Rumpf said. “It’s all about providing them with opportunities so that they can have the American dream just like the rest of us. Sacred Heart is the perfect place to cultivate such a leading-edge program because of its emphasis on social justice.”

Rumpf has extensive experience working in the nonprofit world, primarily in the areas of fund-raising, program planning and advocacy.
