The Office of Institutional Advancement at Edward Waters College builds understanding and support for the higher education enterprise by enhancing the College’s image, involving alumni and other constituencies in pro-active functions, and raising private gift support.

The Institutional Advancement Division’s mission is to develop support among its primary external constituencies, students, alumni, faculty and staff, trustees, parents and community leaders, the AME Church, corporate and foundation organizations, and friends for the College’s vision, goals, programs, and activities. The three central units to the College’s development enterprise are:

  • Institutional Advancement (fundraising, development services, and sponsored programs)
  • College Relations (marketing and communications), and
  • Alumni Affairs.
