Biographical/Historical Note

The Division of University Advancement at Appalachian State University supports and encourages the university's academic mission by engaging alumni and friends and the local community. University Advancement staff help connect these constituents with the university through one-on-one contact, news and information, and special programming, thereby securing the university loyalty and financial resources necessary to create the best possible learning environment for Appalachian students and to best serve the citizens of North Carolina. The division incorporates the offices of: Alumni Affairs, University Communications and Cultural Affairs, Development, and Appalachian State University Foundation, Inc. These constituent offices and the operations they carry out have been under different names, but the Division of University Advancement was created in 1990, and has had a relatively similar structure since then.

Scope and Contents

The Division of University Advancement Records contain administrative, operating, fundraising, correspondence, historical and reporting documents, dating 1911-2008, with the bulk of the material dating 1991-1994. Many of the documents are correspondence, memoranda and subject files. Many of the files have to do with fundraising, fundraising campaigns, donors and special events put on by University Advancement. Of particular note, though a small accession, the Property/Real Estate File contains deeds, warranties and drawings of properties given to Appalachian State Teachers College between 1911 and 1958.

Certain of these files may pertain to the ASU Foundation, Inc. but UA.5049 should be consulted for more detailed information.
