Andrea Mitchell, host of NBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” and Rosemary Mazanet, CEO of DiabetesAmerica and general partner of Apelles Investment Management in New York have been named co-chairs of “Making History,” Penn’s capital fund raising campaign.

Mitchell, a 1967 College of Arts and Sciences and Wharton graduate, and Mazanet, who holds both graduate and medical degrees from Penn, will join Robert Levy and George Weiss on the campaign’s board.

Making History has raised $2.77 billion to date — nearly 80 percent of its $3.5 billion goal within in its first two years.

“I can’t think of anything more rewarding than helping Penn give tomorrow’s leaders the resources to explore their own dreams and become problem solvers in our society. That’s the ultimate goal of the Making History Campaign, and I’m honored if I can play a part,” Mitchell said in a Penn press release.

Mitchell and her husband, Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, endowed a Penn Integrates Knowledge professorship, which is currently held by applied mathematician Robert Ghrist.

“I’m excited and proud to be taking on these new challenges,” Mazanet said, according to the press release. In the Past, Mazanet has served on Penn Medicine’s board of trustees and received the school of Medicine’s alumni service award in 2006.
