Mission and Vision
Fresno State's University Advancement division facilitates the understanding, participation, and support of university goals through students, faculty, alumni, parents and friends, corporations, foundations, and legislators. The University Advancement division represents an institution with the highest standards of excellence and accountability to its constituencies.
Promoting Leadership and Involvement
Excellence in higher education requires the understanding and support of leaders who participate in defining the mission and goals of an institution and assist in providing the resources necessary to their fulfillment. The University Advancement division promotes leadership and involvement among individuals who subscribe to the mission and goals of Fresno State and volunteer to advance the university.
As we advance in the 21 st century, public universities will experience intense competition for resources and students. It is by necessity that the University Advancement division concentrates its efforts in areas that directly or indirectly impact the institutional functions of public support and resource development.
Commitment to Our Community
Inherent in the mission of the University Advancement division is the commitment by its staff to be responsive to the various constituencies served by the university. In particular, emphasis is placed on professional, courteous and responsive behavior toward students, parents, alumni and other leaders upon whom Fresno State depends for support.
