Advancement Staff

Our Mission

The Advancement Office promotes a culture of philanthropy that attracts vital resources in support of the goals and objectives of the College's strategic plan and its core educational mission.

The Advancement team accomplishes this by nurturing life-long relationships with and among alumni, parents, trustees, friends, students, faculty, staff and other constituencies; and by communicating regularly with them through meaningful personal contacts, targeted print and web-based publications, and high-impact special events.
