Systemwide University Advancement
University Advancement encourages and facilitates private support to enhance the University's mission
of providing a high-quality, affordable higher education to meet the ever-changing needs of California.
The Office of Systemwide Advancement provides a number of support-related services for the University
community to build fundraising capacity and ensure accountability. Our role is to facilitate policy
development, promote model practices, coordinate professional development programs, troubleshoot issues,
and produce accountability reports. Systemwide Advancement also assists donors with an interest in
supporting systemwide or regional scholarships and programs.
Private support helps the California State University open access to a broad and diverse student population, build technologically advanced libraries and classrooms, and support innovative teaching models and partnerships. Our students and programs continue to inspire generosity from forward-thinking individuals and organizations who invest in the CSU mission.
