Our Mission

FVSU’s Division of University Advancement leads the development of resources to support student success beyond the tuition and fees supplied by the students themselves. In addition to fundraising, this includes cultivating relationships with donors, corporate partners, alumni, philanthropic organizations, and government. The division works to engage external constituencies to fulfill FVSU’s mission and align their areas of interest with FVSU programs and initiatives.
