University Advancement

At UNC, we are grateful to the individuals, corporations, and foundations that help to create and sustain the extra margin of excellence for which our 17 campuses have become known. 

The Division of University Advancement offers professional development support for the 17 campus-based Advancement Offices of the University of North Carolina, helping to build capacity, create shared services and coordinate professional development for administrative and volunteer leadership. It also has responsibility for raising private funds for inter-institutional and University-wide priorities. In addition, we put special emphasis on helping to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the University's smaller campus development programs, and bring together campus development leaders as part of the UNC Advancement Council.

Support UNC Strategic Directions

At its February 2013 meeting, the UNC Board of Governors adopted "Our Time, Our Future:  the UNC Compact with North Carolina," which will serve as the University's strategic directions for 2013-18.  The Compact offers an ambitious plan to raise the percentage of North Carolinians with a college degree, strengthen the quality of our teaching, serve North Carolina through targeted research and engagement, operate efficiently, and ensure that our campuses remain affordable and financially secure for the next generation of students.

In October 2014 University Advancement published a Strategic Plan titled Enhancing Excellence: Advancement for a System of Higher Learning. The plan is a call to action that engages and supports the established goals of UNC and ensures its preeminence in higher education.
