University of Washington, Office of Advancement
To engage stakeholders in meaningful interactions that foster pride, advocacy and private support for the University of Washington. Fulfilling our mission requires us to build genuine, trust-based relationships, both internally and externally. We accomplish this through a central-decentral model in which every person values one another and takes pride in advancing the UW — one of the leading public universities on Earth.
The cooperative relationships between UW’s central Advancement units and Advancement staff and their partners in the various campuses, schools, departments and programs, creates a philanthropic environment uniquely able to respond to opportunities and make progress toward goals.
The University’s Advancement program employs staff located throughout the UW’s schools, colleges, programs and units on three campuses, as well as in the central development office and the UW Alumni Association. The office is led by the vice president for University Advancement who reports directly to the University president. Reporting directly to the vice president are the Associate Vice Presidents for Advancement Services, Constituency Programs, Individual Giving Programs, and UW Medicine; the Executive Director of the UW Alumni Association; and the Director of Finance & Administration and Marketing.
