Susan Umlor

Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Midwest

Susan Umlor serves as IJM’s Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Midwest. She meets with supporters across the Midwest to provide opportunities for engagement in the work of justice.

Before joining IJM, Susan worked for over 10 years in the fundraising field at various nonprofits, including World Vision. Through engagement in her church’s mission to love God and love others and her time at World Vision, her heart was broken by the things that break the heart of God. Those shaping experiences inspired her calling to be a voice for the poor and oppressed. 

Susan graduated with a B.A. in Family Studies from St. Olaf College and a Master of Arts in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary. She, her husband, and daughter live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
