The Division of University Advancement operates to promote Southeastern, enhance its reputation, and foster volunteer involvement and private investment by creating and stewarding meaningful relationships. Advancement is comprised of five components: Advancement Services, Affiliate Accounting, Alumni Relations, University Marketing and Communications, and Development. Working closely with the Southeastern Alumni Association, the Southeastern Foundation, and the Lion Athletics Association, Advancement collaborates with the campus and external communities to advance and support the university's mission. Responsibilities of the entire division include fundraising, external university marketing and communications, and supporting programs for alumni relations.
