Working with Us

Our team coordinates their work with school deans, directors and foundation development officers.


Our team connects external partners with UNC-Chapel Hill’s faculty and staff to advance mutual goals that align with the University’s institutional interests and priorities. We help to:


  • Build relationships with foundation and industry funders
  • Explore opportunities to advance mutual interests
  • Promote University interests and priorities through strategic partnerships
  • Explore opportunities for collaboration between the University and industry


We work with faculty and staff to foster meaningful engagement with companies and foundations and to advance the University’s mission. To support faculty and staff, we:


  • Conduct prospect research in collaboration with key project stakeholders to identify potential private funders
  • Develop proposals for University and partner priorities in consultation with senior administration
  • Assist with applications, awards submission, progress reports and other stewardship related items
  • Offer a portfolio of development training and professional skills development
