The Office of Advancement in the College of Social Science includes alumni relations and development. The Advancement office is responsible for developing, implementing, and coordinating the College's alumni and fundraising programs. Our eyes are always on the future, looking for opportunities to constantly improve life for our students and faculty. And we couldn't do it without YOU, our dedicated alumni.

Working with College administration, faculty, alumni and friends, our office works to foster communication between all constituencies. We are primarily committed to helping you, our alumni, keep in touch with the College by providing ways to engage with fellow alumni and current students. We also offer alumni and friends information about how to make financial gifts to the College and the University, and we steward these gifts to ensure that they are used effectively.

One of the ways you can stay connected to the College of Social Science and its departments, schools and programs is by creating a profile in our online community. Creating a profile allows you to update contact information, search for friends who are also alumni of the College, and let us know from what areas of the College you would prefer to get emails from time to time. 

Just click STAY CONNECTED, and you can get started on your profile or log in again if you've already created your profile. It's easy, it's free, and it's a great way to connect with Spartans from all Social Science majors.
