The Office of Institutional Development coordinates the university's private sector fund-raising activities. In the face of shrinking state support for higher education, JSU relies increasingly on the generosity of its many friends and benefactors as it strives to serve the needs of the community.
The mission of Institutional Development is to enhance and promote the quality of education, research and public service at Jacksonville State University, and to create and maintain long-range dynamic support programs for the institution.
Institutional Development supports the institutional goals of the university and its colleges by cultivating philanthropic resources and soliciting donations from alumni, friends, businesses, corporations, associations, organizations and foundations.
Development staff work with alumni, private individuals, businesses and foundations to secure the financial resources JSU needs to fund its critically important programs and activities. The Office of Institutional Development works closely with administrators, deans and faculty members to identify and define university funding needs not satisfied by state appropriations. Development personnel are always willing to assist personnel, alumni and university friends in identifying funding needs and directing donations.
