The Office of University Advancement

The University development community consists of professionals and support staff in the Office of University Advancement, in academic units and programs, and in University-related foundations around the Grounds. To ensure University-wide coordination of prospect cultivation and solicitation, the office operates a comprehensive development information system to serve the entire development community. University Advancement Services manages the University’s overall relations with corporate and foundation organizations; structures approaches to individuals for the solicitation of all planned gifts including major outright gifts, life income gifts, and bequests for the benefit of any area of the University; manages the alumni/development computer network system, which provides all automated support for fund-raising and development activities; and performs a variety of functions which enhance the fund-raising capabilities of the University.
