Institutional Advancement

The Division of Institutional Advancement works to further recognition of The University of Tulsa and its mission as a leading private research university, and to develop financial support for the institution.


Registry of Patrons

We are pleased to bring you this Registry of Patrons publication as a tribute to those who helped us make our vision a reality by investing so generously in TU's future.

Their gifts have already begun raising the facilities, delivering the scholarships, funding the faculty and growing the programs that will define TU’s next dynamic chapter.

The Office of Institutional Advancement is the primary strategic link between The University of Tulsa and its principal external constituencies: alumni, donors and friends.

The role of Institutional Advancement is to support and advance the mission of the university by increasing engagement in and financial support for the institution. In this role, the 55-member team of the centralized IA staff leads TU's fundraising, donor services, special events, public relations, marketing, alumni relations, and stewardship efforts through strategic, university-wide initiatives.
