The Development Office (formerly the Foundation Office) was established in 1998 to assist the University in its development and enhancement by garnering donor support and providing valuable networking opportunities for alumni, community members, and friends of the University.
The key activities of the Development Office are:
- assisting alumni and friends to maintain contact with each other and the University
- building strong relationships with the community
- increasing donor support for University initiatives
- reporting the progress of this support and how it aids the University's development.
The Development Office works with the University Foundation Board, a group of dedicated volunteers who advise on Development Office initiatives and activities and help build long-term relationships with the community.
USC is supported by many generous people who believe that a donation to our university is the best way to assist the development of our young people and our growing community. We proudly receive donations of any size to provide financial support for students, and recently have accepted major gifts and bequests that have helped us build infrastructure and create our first research institute.
