    March 6, 2012

    Lillian Hochstein, MPA '96, will join the Pike Place Market Foundation as its new executive director on March 26. She has more than 18 years of nonprofit management and community relations experience. Hochstein comes to the Market Foundation from Wellspring Family Services where she has been the Vice President of Development and Communications.

    “I’m excited to become the next Market Foundation executive director,” she said. “This is a unique role that will marry my passion for preserving the heritage of this community with my interest in issues of social justice and human service.”

    Since 1982, the nonprofit Market Foundation has raised more $17 million to support the market's human service agencies: Pike Market Child Care & Preschool, Pike Market Senior Center and Downtown Food Bank, and Pike Market Medical Clinic. These agencies annually serve more than 10,000 low-income, homeless, and elderly residents of downtown Seattle.

    The Master of Public Administration is an advanced degree program offered by the Institute of Public Service in the College of Arts and Sciences. The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate and 7 advanced degrees.
