Make a difference by changing a life.
We are committed to the growth and prosperity of the university and its programs, scholarships, facilities, academic quality, research capacity and outreach. Our team creates opportunities, builds partnerships and cultivates strong relationships with our alumni, donors, leaders, students and University employees.
The University of Idaho’s division of University Advancement builds relationships and support for the university’s mission of academic leadership for the betterment of our state and the state of our nation. Through our integrated efforts with the Alumni Association, marketing and communications, development, and the University of Idaho Foundation, we engage our many stakeholders, secure private support through a donor-centered approach, steward and manage gifts, foster community outreach and tell our story broadly to strengthen and position the state’s flagship University.
The university advancement division is made up of three departments – Development, Alumni Association/Alumni Relations and Vice President, Advancement. The University of Idaho Foundation is a separate nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that accepts and manages private support for the benefit of the University of Idaho. The U of I Foundation closely partners with University Advancement and the Office of the President to support the university’s strategic mission.
