Welcome to the Division of Institutional Advancement

Division Changes Name

In returning to its earlier name—Institutional Advancement the division primarily responsible for the university’s fundraising, marketing and communications, alumni engagement, community relations, advancement services, and legislative relations hopes to clarify its role. Every aspect of our team is focused on moving the university forward—cultivating potential donors, communicating our brand, strengthening legislative relations, bringing alumni back, telling the Tarleton story it’s all about advancing the institution,; says Vice President Kyle McGregor. The division had used the Institutional Advancement name for years prior to adopting the Advancement and External Relations moniker around 2010. Also, within Marketing and Communications, the Web Strategy group now is known as Web Services, focused on advancing the university’s mission by strategic use of its web pages and sites. Additionally, a News and Information team, under Cecilia Jacobs, now links media relations, feature writing, social media, internal communications and video production.
