About University Development

Supporting the Chico Experience

Thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends, Chico State changes lives every day through real-world learning, applied research, and a commitment to community and service.

University Development generates philanthropic support to enhance the Chico Experience. Our team of professional development officers, along with our amazing students at the Chico State Calling Center and Student Philanthropy Council, work across the University to build resources for

  • scholarships;
  • academic and student development programs;
  • faculty research and recruitment;
  • programs and services that benefit the North State;
  • improved campus facilities and technology; and
  • initiatives that keep us leading the way in sustainability, study abroad, student experience, and community engagement.
