“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.” – Kavita Ramdas

My name is Dr. Sonaliz Morel-Baker, and I am the Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, Major Gifts Officer at Immaculate Conception High School (ICHS).  The moment I met Mr. Joseph R. Azzolino and walked down the halls of ICHS, I knew I needed to be part of the community. I quickly learned that ICHS is dedicated to preparing young women for college, careers, families and civic leadership. I am proud to be part of a community where we strive to build a strong foundation for excellence in all our students’ pursuits and their ability to handle life’s challenges with grace. We foster great expectations for our students and their futures.

I  have experience working as the Director of Development in the Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) at Bank Street College of Education and I previously served as their Director of Individual Giving. Before joining Bank Street, I worked at New Jersey City University (NJCU) for over eight years, holding roles as its Director of Annual Fund and Alumni Programs, Director of Alumni and Development Services, and Director of Development Services.

Prior to NJCU, I worked at the Hetrick-Martin Institute as its Institutional Researcher and Data Administrator. I received a BA in Political Science and English Literature from Baruch College, a Master’s in Public Administration from John Jay College, and a Doctor of Education (EdD) degree in Educational Technology Leadership from the New Jersey City University.

Currently, I serve on the Board for Helping All Women Transform (H.A.W.T.). It is a non-profit organization that provides stabilization for young women transitioning out of foster care.
