The University's Development Office is the clearinghouse for all fund-raising activities throughout the University. Its purpose is to improve the University's success in securing greater private support for priority needs through use of its services. It is also the clearinghouse for all fund-raising activities done in the name of the University by any support organization.
The Office of Development serves to advise and assist schools, departments, student groups and University support organizations with their specialized needs.
All support organizations, including student groups, wishing to conduct fund-raising activities in the name of the University and/or use University resources must submit, in writing, requests to do so along with a description of the activities, proposed budget, projected dollar amount to be raised for University purposes, and a schedule for conducting the activity.
For new fund-raising initiatives, the Vice President or Assistant Vice President for Development must approve an initiative before fundraising may commence, so the range of development activities at the University is efficiently coordinated
