Office of Institutional Advancement

The primary mission of the Office of Institutional Advancement is to enhance private sector support for the University and, simultaneously, to develop and maintain good relationships with the general public, alumni, and private funding sources. The Office is divided into five areas that are responsible for University-wide advancement activities. These divisions work to build good will among alumni, the corporate and foundation communities and friends of the University and to solicit gifts for University projects from these groups. The five divisions are:

  • Alumni Relations

  • Development Programs
    • Corporate and Foundation Relations
    • Individual Giving
      • Annual Fund
      • Planned Giving
