The Brandeis University Institutional Advancement (IA) Division is a comprehensive development and alumni relations enterprise that integrates the critical functions of fundraising, alumni relations and advancement services. Our mission is to:

  • build strong, lasting relationships with the institution’s various constituencies;
  • match donors’ interests with strategic academic priorities;
  • broaden the university’s base of support;
  • and secure the financial resources necessary for Brandeis to continue achieving excellence in teaching, research and scholarship.
IA is strongly committed to supporting the academic and intellectual agenda of the university and to creating a culture of philanthropy among members of the Brandeis community. Integrity, collegiality, diversity, accountability, trust and respect for the individual as well as the intentions of our donors are the fundamental values that guide our work.
