(Denver, Colo.) — ´╗┐Metropolitan State College of Denver has added three professionals to their development team in the division of Institutional Advancement.


Susan Shirk Noble has been named director of development for major and planned gifts. Jaime Livaditis has joined the College’s development team as associate director of development for the School of Professional Studies and the School of Business. Trey Lambert has joined the College’s development team as associate director of development for Athletics and the School of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
