About University Advancement
The university advancement division is made up of three departments – Development, Alumni Association/Alumni Relations and Vice President, Advancement. U of I Foundation is affiliated with Advancement but is a stand-alone department.
Through relationships with alumni, donors, leaders, business partners, legislators and the community, we are able to inspire investment, build advocacy groups and encourage active engagement. Through communications, outreach, media correspondence and government relations, we build awareness, inspire action and sustain valuable alliances with our constituents.
