University Relations & Development
Promoting the Needs of the University
The Division of University Relations and Development executes programs and activities designed to foster relationships of goodwill with alumni and friends, to assist the institution in its efforts to recruit students and faculty and to enhance the understanding and financial resources the university needs to achieve its mission. The division is comprised of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving, Conferences and Special Events, Development/TSU Foundation, Gentry Complex Programs and University Publications.
University Relations and Development consists of four main areas.
The TSU Foundation can make college a reality for many families, inspire a student's mind to new possibilities, and stretch the University's resources to fund the necessities which are sometimes lost in the belt-tightening mode of all public institutions today. For the larger community, the TSU Foundation helps provide educated minds for good citizenship and an educated workforce for greater economic development.
Office of Alumni Relations offers many services for alumni, visitors, and current TSU students, faculty, and staff. They publish the alumni magazine, organize class reunions, provide alumni services, award scholarships, and organize alumni chapters. For more information visit the Office of Alumni Relations.

Events Management also serves as the event planning liaison to the academic and research components of the university. This unit further prepares and distributes a weekly events calendar.
The Office of University Publications assists the university with planning and producing publications consistent with the university style, brand and image guidelines and to inform its target constituency of university accomplishments, events, programs and news.
