The mission of the Office of Institutional Advancement is to promote the overall growth of the University and enhance the institution’s standing in the broader community. To accomplish this, Institutional Advancement maintains divisions devoted to development, alumni relations, private/public grants, foundation/corporate relations, and communications.
The Office of Advancement secures funding from foundations, government sources, and private donors, raising nearly $40 million to support University operations, programs, projects, and student scholarships in the last five years.
The Alumni Relations program promotes alumni giving, programming, volunteering and engagement with current students and alumni.
