About University Advancement

The University Advancement division promotes and supports the University of Toronto by engaging a worldwide community of alumni and friends in support of its work as one of the world's leading research universities.

Working closely with the university's senior leadership, its constituencies, alumni and volunteer leaders, University Advancement leads and coordinates alumni relations, fundraising and stewardship efforts across the university. Our uniquely integrated structure encourages each division, department or college to bring its particular strengths and expertise to the common cause of university advancement. Our staff aspires to the highest standards of achievement and accountability for advancement professionals.

By communicating about our alumni, and the achievements of faculty, students and staff, University Advancement fosters a sense of community, commitment and common purpose among the university's stakeholders.

Investment made by alumni and friends provides the margin for excellence required to meet the University of Toronto's ambitious goals in the global arena. University Advancement facilitates alumni and donor support by encouraging alumni advocacy for public support and facilitating private support for key university priorities.
