This division strives to develop partnerships with businesses, governmental agencies, community leaders, private donors, as well as Allen University’s extended family, including alumni, faculty, staff, students and parents.  The overall goal for Institutional Advancement is to strengthen and ensure the University’s academic and economic growth.

The Office of Institutional Advancement  comprises: Development & External Affairs,  Communications and Marketing, and the Office of Alumni Affairs.  Together, these areas strive to enhance the tradition of excellence by increasing and diversifying the University’s resources and raising the University’s profile.
