The Division of Advancement is working on several aspects of this project to reach this goal and to create engagement among the various University stakeholders. An alumni engagement program is being created to inspire alumni to give both time and money along a “ladder of engagement” that shepherds prospects through an ever-increasing commitment schedule. Coordination of all advancement activities through dedicated advancement liaisons or engagement managers for each school/unit will also create more alumni engagement opportunities. To assist this effort, a wealth screen/data mining project to highlight high-capacity prospects will be conducted. At the same time, efforts are underway to involve faculty in the work of the Foundation — a percolator system to bubble ideas from faculty through to the appropriate fundraising officers.
