Office of University Advancement

Welcome to the Office of University Advancement. Please review the different areas — Development and Alumni Relations, Communications and Development — to see how to stay informed, get involved or support the various university offerings that range from art school for young children to presentations and workshops for seniors, and everything in between. You’ll also find news about academic programs and fellow alumni in press releases and our online version of Egret magazine, as well as ways to honor loved ones through contributions to UHCL.

UA programs include the following:

Office of Development and Alumni Relations

The Office of Development and Alumni Relations focuses on building meaningful relationships with alumni and the community through an array of events and outreach initiatives. Alumni Relations programs include coordination of general alumni activities as well as oversight of the UHCL Alumni Association. The purpose of the UHCL Alumni Association is to contact, engage, serve, empower and acknowledge alumni through programming, services, events and outreach. All UHCL graduates and recipients of teacher’s certificates are automatically members of the UHCL Alumni Association – no dues necessary. Members of the UHCL Alumni Association have access to the entire family of alumni, plus a host of great benefits.

Office of Communications

The Office of Communications promotes university relations by communicating UHCL news, information and messages to key university constituents. Communications staff members provide a broad range of services in the areas of media relations, social media, publications, online publishing projects and institutional identity. In addition to producing and distributing an average of 30 news releases every month, the office produces UHCL's bi-annual magazine, Egret, and the university's Donor Honor Roll. It also coordinates general institutional advertising in an array of business, community and news organizations' communication vehicles. Additionally, the office works with its sister institutions on system-wide marketing communications initiatives.

Office of Development

The Office of Development supports the mission of the university through cultivating relationships with alumni, students, faculty and university friends. The creation of these vital partnerships paves the way for new scholarships, endowments, and support for academic opportunities. Development staff members facilitate contributions by individuals, foundations and corporations by helping donors establish their own philanthropic goals while meeting university- and program-specific needs. The office also oversees the university's Annual Fund and Planned Giving program, in addition to various stewardship programs that recognize how each donor's support furthers the development of the university and Houston-Galveston region.
