University Advancement is the public face of Utah State University, managing the University’s relationships with its alumni, friends, and the public. The Advancement Office has three components: the Alumni Association, Public Relations and Marketing, and Development. Alumni Relations’ charge is to build and maintain strong connections with its alumni around the globe. Public Relations and Marketing holds responsibility for the public image of the University, telling the University’s stories. The Office of Development provides resources for the University by securing private sources of funding.

The Office of Development’s responsibility for raising private funds includes every aspect of relationship building, from publishing magazines and newsletters that keep donors connected and informed to ensuring that gifts are stewarded properly and holding celebrations to thank donors for their contributions.

Private gifts to the University augment declining state support and enable the University to build up-to-date facilities, conduct cutting-edge research, create innovative academic programs, and showcase exciting performers and guest speakers. Moreover, private support provides scholarships for deserving students who otherwise would not be able to afford the cost of higher education.

University Advancement provides professional assistance to the Utah State University community in the area of charitable giving. For further information on how to transmit gifts of cash, securities, or in-kind property to the University through a number of tax-friendly strategies, contact University Advancement, Main 101, 1440 Old Main Hill, Logan UT 84322-1440, (435) 797-1158 or toll-free (888) OLD-MAIN (653-6246).

The Utah State University Alumni Association numbers more than 180,000 members. This membership includes all who have attended USU for one semester (or one quarter) or more, or who have served on the staff or faculty of the University.

The mission of the Alumni Association is to promote the interests and welfare of Utah State University, as well as that of USU alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.

The governance of the association is vested in the Executive Board. The board is comprised of the president and vice president of the association, the vice president of University Advancement, the president of the Associated Students of USU, the president of the Emeriti, the president of the Young Alumni, the president of the Student Alumni Association, a College Alumni/Development representative, a University faculty representative, the University Athletic Director, the director of Alumni Relations, the immediate past president of the association, and representatives of regional alumni chapters selected by the Council of Chapter Presidents with the approval of the Executive Board.

The Alumni Association is the medium through which former students maintain contact with the University and are served after leaving the campus. Efforts are made to maintain a complete record of every former student throughout life, and his or her accomplishments and progress are recorded. The association maintains alumni volunteers and chapter organizations throughout Utah and in major areas where former students are located. Through the association, former students are kept in contact with each other, and they meet and participate in business and social activities. They likewise assist the University with special projects in their areas.

The Alumni Association takes the leadership in sponsoring such campus events as Homecoming, Founders Day, Distinguished Service Awards, Aggie Family Day, and reunions. The association also provides opportunities for travel through the alumni travel program, and aids in athletic and other school activities.
