About Us

Who We Are

University Advancement staff members are dedicated to developing and maintaining strong and lasting connections to the university. How one perceives, interacts with and supports UNCG forms the basis of all that we do. Whether we’re engaging alumni, friends, community members or corporate partners (and in many cases, even current students), we share a collective responsibility and passion for cultivating a wide variety of partnerships and experiences across the university, our community and beyond.

A number of professionally diverse units with specific charges come together to comprise University Advancement and support our shared mission.
