University Advancement

Building on the reputation of more than 130 years of academic excellence and community impact, university advancement elevates the brand of UNC, engages external constituents, and develops the philanthropic strategies that support UNC priorities. 

Reporting to Vice President Allie Steg Haskett ’03, UNC’s advancement staff manage all facets of UNC’s external operation to include advancement operations, alumni and constituent relations, development, and marketing and communications. The division works with UNC leadership as well as faculty and staff to effectively promote and market the university and engage donors and alumni in philanthropy, volunteerism, advocacy, and the responsible management of gifts and constituent records. Additionally, the UNC Foundation, a separate legal entity, works closely with all of University Advancement and is integrated both physically and strategically in all facets of the advancement enterprise.

University Advancement offices are located on the first floor of Carter Hall. Reach us at 970-351-2551 or advancement@unco.edu.
