University Relations and Development



One of SDSU's main divisions, University Relations and Development generates the external recognition, support and financial resources the university needs to carry out its mission and to achieve its aspirational goals.

Working with alumni, parents, donors and community, University Relations and Development broadens the resources available to the university to enhance academic quality and enrich the local and world community.

All of the units of University Relations and Development work together to bring recognition and resources to the university. The SDSU Alumni Association reconnects and grows relationships with alumni. Marketing & Communications builds better understanding of the university among the campus community, the media, community leaders and elected officials. Development works closely with faculty, volunteers and donors to help meet college- and program-specific needs.

In addition, Mary Ruth Carleton, vice president of University Relations and Development, serves as CEO of The Campanile Foundation, the university's philanthropic foundation.
