Development and External Relations
Our office works in tandem with other related offices and areas at the college and university level to support the College's strategic objectives through increasing philanthropic support.
Gifts to Fulbright College made by alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations transform the College by giving its administration and faculty more and better ways to carry out its vision and fulfill its purpose. Private support allows the College to withstand fluctuations in other funding sources, creates new possibilities to fund initiatives not previously sponsored, and ensures a perpetual source of support that builds over time and ultimately transforms the College’s programs and reputation. Collectively, private benefactors help safeguard and enhance a Fulbright College education.
Our office works to support the College's strategic objectives; promote successes, events and gifts associated with students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends; and advance the legacy of Senator J. William Fulbright. We also serve as a central liaison to University Relations on behalf of the Fulbright College.
We consult with academic and administrative units in the College, providing guidance and services for communications and creative strategic planning. Areas of expertise include but are not limited to:
- Media and public relations
- Social media strategies
- Marketing and recruitment strategies
- Writing and editing for Newswire and other communications
- Event planning and promotion strategies
- Web design, development and support
- Print design
- University brand compliance
