Institutional Advancement

Philanthropy helps the College for Creative Studies accomplish its mission by supporting scholarships, faculty, programs, student wellbeing, facilities, and more. A growing base of donors – individuals, corporations, foundations, and government – supplement the financial resources provided by tuition and other operating income. Institutional Advancement (IA) is responsible for overseeing the acceptance of charitable gifts, fundraising initiatives, and alumni engagement at the College-level to complement activities at the department level. Moreover, IA collaborates with the Office of Partnerships (7.6.5), to support their leadership efforts to engage the Corporate community in support of funds to impact the College.
