External Relations and Development

External Relations and Development works to generate external support, particularly philanthropic support, for the strategic priorities of the School of Education. ER&D’s functions include development, communications and marketing, alumni relations, and government relations. ER&D supports the School’s academic programs, and its research, service, and outreach initiatives in a variety of ways, including:

  • Building philanthropic support through the direct efforts of ER&D staff, as well as by providing consultation to and support of the fundraising efforts of SOE faculty and staff
  • Working with SOE faculty and staff to communicate about their work to external and internal constituencies through print and electronic publications, as well as by facilitating contact with news media
  • Connecting SOE faculty and staff with people and organizations, including alumni, community members and potential funders, to foster collaboration and partnership in pursuit of shared goals
