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 institutions and 3 affiliates have become known. 

The Division of University Advancement offers professional development support for advancement offices of the 17 institutions and 3 affiliates. This work includes helping institutions to build capacity, creating shared services, and coordinating professional development for administrative and volunteer leadership. The division 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.
