Institutional Advancement & University Relations

The Office of Institutional Advancement and Univeristy Relations is dedicated to supporting Heidelberg's mission and moving it forward.

Heidelberg's success is linked directly to the unwavering support and commitment of those alumni, parents and friends who give to the University. Your support enables Heidelberg to fulfill its mission, and helps us cover the costs of essentials such as faculty salaries, student activities, scholarships and the new initiatives that keep the University moving forward.

We publicize and promote Heidelberg University to its internal audiences (students, staff, faculty, trustees and alumni) and external audiences (the community at-large, at the local, regional, state and national levels).
