Global Advancement

Global Advancement is responsible for building long-term relationships with the University’s alumni and supporters around the world.

The department is currently working on the University's largest ever fundraising Campaign, 'Making the Exceptional Happen', which aims to raise £60 million and 60,000 volunteering hours by 2020.

The Campaign aims to grow research in four key areas: Health, Living Systems, Environment and Sustainability, and Society and Culture, as well as supporting students to achieve their potential through scholarships, bursaries, sports and enhancing employability.

Global Advancement is also responsible for alumni relations. More than 140,000 Exeter alumni are spread across the world, and many remain closely involved in supporting the University. Generous gifts of time and money from our alumni and supporters help our students get the most from their time at university, and succeed after graduation.
