University Advancement


The mission of the Division of University Advancement is to establish and maintain relationships that lead to philanthropic gifts to support the university. We support student success and faculty scholarship through contributions from alumni, individual donors, foundations and corporations and by offering advice on planned gifts. The Division promotes the university through community engagement and by identifying potential institutional partnerships.

Operational units include Development, Alumni Relations, Annual Giving, Planned Giving and Advancement Services.

UHD supporters through their willingness to give time, talent and financial resources play a vital role in achieving student and University success.

Contributions from alumni, individuals, foundations, corporations and community organizations help create an environment that supports student success. UHD students are self-actualized, focused on their goals and intent on fulfilling their dreams. Gifts, such as scholarships, professorships, support to degree programs and special initiatives, help to ensure that those goals are realized. UHD students will be the future leaders in a knowledge-based economy, the innovators and the problem solvers in an increasingly interconnected world marketplace. Community support ensures that UHD students will be prepared. The Division of University Advancement makes certain that every opportunity is provided for donors to fulfill their own dreams through meaningful gifts.
