The mission of the Office of Institutional Advancement is to promote Saint Martin’s University’s cause among its alumni, parents and friends; raise funds in support of Saint Martin’s University’s Benedictine educational mission and its priorities; and build strong relationships between Saint Martin’s and its various constituencies.

The office executes its mission in a variety of ways including personal contacts, publications, direct mail marketing, phonathons and special events and programs. The office follows the codes of ethics of the various disciplines represented in the higher education including the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG) and the Association of Professional Researcher for Advancement (APRA). In addition, the Office of Institutional Advancement conducts its work in accordance with the standards of the University’s Benedictine and Roman Catholic mission.
