Institutional Advancement

Institutional Advancement supports the mission of Huston-Tillotson University while seeking opportunities to cultivate donors. Development, Alumni Affairs, Public Relations and Marketing, and Sponsored Programs fall within the unit. The annual President’s Mankind Assisting Student Kindle Educational Dreams (MASKED) Scholarship Gala, Reunion Weekend, and Homecoming are a few of the events sponsored by the department. Major projects include the restoration of the Anthony and Louise Viaer-Alumni Hall in which the unit is housed and the upcoming Health and Wellness Center.

The Institutional Advancement staff looks forward to meeting you.
