In her role as Executive Director of Foundation Relations, Lindley Huey leads a team of ten focused on developing and managing relationships with a broad range of independent foundations and unaffiliated family foundations. She brings to the role close to fifteen years of experience at MIT, first in the Office of Corporate Relations, where she held increasingly responsible positions in the research unit, and more recently in Foundation Relations, which she joined as associate director in 2002. Lindley became director in 2010, and since then has led the effort to define strategy for securing foundation support for major institute and school priorities and faculty projects, working closely with senior officers, deans, and faculty. Prior to coming to MIT, she worked as an attorney, first at a non-profit agency in New York City, and then at a general practice law firm in New Hampshire. She also spent a year working in a start-up in the Boston area. Lindley received a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Wesleyan University and earned her J.D. from Fordham Law School.
