University Advancement

Taking the Eagle Nation to the World

The Office of University Advancement is about creating relationships.

We are focused on the priorities of Georgia Southern University, and as we look at these priorities, we examine which alumni, friends, parents, corporations and foundations can partner with us in making them into realities.

In today’s economic climate, the University has found itself with fewer and fewer state and federal funds, making partnerships such as these a necessity not only for special initiatives but also for the basic functions of operation.

In University Advancement, however, we are excited about the great things our relationships have already accomplished for the University and its students, and we continue to look forward to what our donors will help us to accomplish in the future.
