Department Profile (Specific Information about department/program):
The UCSB Office of Development blends the strengths of both a centralized and a decentralized operation. Although all development officers report to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Development, some are dedicated to specific schools and units, working hand-in-hand with Deans, Directors and faculty to secure private support. Additional development officers focus on specific regions of the country and/or are dedicated to increasing involvement by alumni, parents and friends. A strong central core initiates programs, or provides guidance and expertise, in foundation relations, planned giving, capital projects, donor stewardship, The UCSB Foundation and other areas of specialization. An integrated tracking and coordination system ensures a collaborative and smooth working environment, all aimed at enhancing UCSB's attractiveness to, and involvement with, the private sector.
