Institutional Advancement

The mission of the Office of Institutional Advancement is to promote the overall growth of the college 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.

Institutional Advancement has led in efforts to secure funding from foundations, government sources, and private donors. During the 2015 fiscal year, the office raised over $715,000 for the college's operations, programs, projects, and student scholarships.

The Alumni Relations program promotes alumni giving, programming, volunteering and engagement with current students and alumni.
