About the Advancement Team

The Advancement Team supports the College of Engineering and Applied Science by generating support from corporations, foundations, alumni, and friends of the college.

We are located within the college's Administrative Offices on the first floor of the Engineering Center on the CU-Boulder campus. Our proximity to faculty, students, and college administrators allows us to keep a pulse on the many exciting opportunities for donors to support a department, program, or initiative that aligns with their personal passions or corporate goals.
