Welcome to Advancement Services at Oakland University, a department within The Division of Development, Alumni and Community Engagement. I hope you find this quick reference repository for policies, manuals, forms and other resources helpful.
Advancement Services exists in order to support the activities of Development, Alumni and Community Engagement such as developing lifelong relationships with our students, alumni and supporters, and building a strong community that stays involved in Oakland University. Through these activities, we work together to advance the university. The support Advancement Services provides is that of a sound technological infrastructure. Advancement Services is responsible for all strategic development services activities, including gift processing, donor relations, technology, document imaging, training, and data services and will meet the needs of the fund raising professionals who use the university's relational database, while also developing and implement strategic operating plans for information systems in anticipation of future needs.
Our goal is to assist in allowing the goals of the university's strategic plan to be met through the highest levels of efficiency, accountability, an infrastructure support.
