Alumni & Development Communications

The Alumni and Development Communications team helps you with tools to tell stories, build relationships, strengthen connections, and inspire giving.

We work with units across campus to oversee timing and sending of mass emails to external audiences, ensuring that messages don't overlap and to maximize the effect of your messages.

We work closely with the UO Alumni Association to fulfill its mission, making the UO stronger by fostering lifelong, mutually beneficial relationships between the university, its alumni association members, and nearly 200,000 Duck alumni worldwide. We tell the stories of alumni of every generation who are making a difference in the world, and illuminate opportunities for friendship, careers, advocacy, and service.
