Development is responsible for the cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of the University's donors, including individuals, corporations, charitable foundations and government agencies. Contributions most typically support the annual fund, scholarships, and special programs and projects. Development works with its constituencies to identify the most suitable vehicle(s) for their support, whether through annual and event-based giving, restricted giving, or through endowment and planned giving.
