Darlene Lamourt, of Perth Amboy, has joined the development staff in the Advancement Office at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) as the new campaign director. Lamourt previously worked at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, first as associate director of development, corporate and foundation relations; then as associate director of development, faculty of arts and science and for Rutgers College.

Lamourt received a BS in international marketing from Pace University, and has extensive marketing and business development experience.
