We facilitate financial and other support for the university's research, teaching and public service mission.

The Office of Institutional Advancement (IA) promotes, expedites, encourages and assists the campuses in increasing private, voluntary support of the university by providing a central hub for inquiries about support, managing reports and analyses of fundraising activities and assuring accountability in the private support program. We work to interpret, coordinate and oversee policy for volunteer and private support, oversee endowment administration matters and issues related to UC's status as a 501(c)(3) entity. Learn more about IA.
