University Advancement's fundraising staff assists colleges, departments, and programs in leveraging private support. Working with deans, directors, and faculty, our advancement directors help foster relationships and steward donors in support of the University's priorities and fundraising initiatives. As members of the fundraising team, these individuals work with Advancement's central services to nurture relationships with alumni, faculty, staff, and the community to enhance philanthropic support to the institution.
