College Advancement

Mission and Objectives

The Division of College Advancement at Evergreen includes Development, Alumni Programs, Marketing, Communications, and College Relations. Our division fosters mutually beneficial relationships with students, alumni, friends, donors, civic, corporate and elected officials, the media, and the general public. A comprehensive marketing, communications, and college relations program informs our constituents about the college's offerings, opportunities, and accomplishments, promoting a strong positive institutional image. A comprehensive alumni relations program promotes lifelong meaningful connections among alumni, students and Evergreen, as well as connecting alumni-to-alumni. In partnership with The Evergreen State College Foundation, the division raises private financial support, manages and invests those resources, and distributes them to college programs in accordance with donor interests and institutional priorities.

The primary objectives of the division are:

  • To recruit and retain students who will be successful at Evergreen
  • To increase and deepen engagement with key constituents that result in lifelong relationships
  • To increase and diversify revenue in support of students and college programs
