Division of Institutional Advancement

The Division of Institutional Advancement is the arm of the University that seeks to raise awareness of Eastern’s public liberal arts mission while promoting both private and public financial support on behalf of Eastern’s students and faculty. Staying in touch with alumni; expanding philanthropic support among alumni, friends, and other donors; and sharing Eastern’s story with the public via traditional and social media, publications and other means, are all key activities of the Division.

To Eastern’s ongoing supporters, I would like to say thank you and ask you once again to consider a gift this fiscal year. If you are contemplating a gift for the first time, please review these web pages to get a better understanding of Eastern’s institutional priorities. With your support, we can continue on our path to becoming one of America’s distinguished public liberal arts universities. Thank you for your interest in Eastern.
