THE DIVISION OF ADVANCEMENT promotes York University’s teaching and research priorities by engaging our diverse community of alumni and friends to build long-term mutually-beneficial relationships and provide support to the university’s faculty and students.
The Division is comprised of three departments:
- Advancement Services manages alumni and donor information and processes gifts to the University;
- Alumni Relations provides programs and services to over 240,000 York alumni worldwide;
- Development leads efforts to promote and secure philanthropic support from alumni, donors, parents and friends;
This is an exciting time to be at York. The highly successful York to the Power of 50 fundraising campaign was generously supported by more than 30,000 alumni, donors and friends, allowing the University to undertake a wide variety of new projects. Taking an integrated approach, the Division of Advancement is building on this success to enhance York’s engagement with our many communities. Together with our partners across the University, we will enable York to become a leading research university in the 21st century.
