University Advancement’s Office of Engagement fosters lifelong relationships with alumni, friends, families, and fans, strengthening their connections with the University by helping them stay informed, involved, and invested in their UVA passions.
Our team creates and supports nearly 1,000 events each year in cities and communities around the globe that include in-person and virtual engagement opportunities. We create fundraising strategies, in partnership with schools and programs across Grounds, that help increase donor participation and philanthropic support of the University.
Our team is comprised of 44 University and 55 student employees and coordinates events and programs with over 1,000 alumni, parent, and student volunteers. We work together to create world-class networks, engagement, learning, and giving opportunities through programs like Alumni & Parent Travel, Lifetime Learning, University Annual Giving, and UVA Clubs Global Network.
