University Advancement

At the UNC System, 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 institution-based Advancement Offices, helping to build capacity, creating shared services, and coordinating professional development for administrative and volunteer leadership. It also has responsibility for raising private funds for inter-institutional and University-wide priorities. In addition, it puts special emphasis on helping to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the University's smaller institution development programs and brings together campus development leaders as part of the UNC System Advancement Council.  Please scroll down to see a list of UNC System Chief Advancement Officers.

For assistance related to development and philanthropic support, please contact Timothy Minor, Vice President for Advancement, by calling (919) 962-4231.

 

Support Your Campus

Each of the 17 institutions of the University of North Carolina System has its own unique identity, academic strengths and development vision. Visit each of our campuses to learn about the development priorities, ongoing development efforts and how to make a gift that matters.
