The Division of Advancement and External Affairs (AEA) encompasses the offices of Development, Public Affairs, Engagement Initiatives, Alumni Engagement, Program Development, and Special Events, as well as AEA operations in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Dubai, UAE.

AEA is responsible for fostering productive, long-term relationships with alumni, donors, and other external constituencies in support of Syracuse University’s educational mission and vision.

AEA departments provide services to the offices of Development and Alumni Engagement, staff and senior administrators in Advancement and External Affairs, all schools and colleges within Syracuse University, and many other academic and administrative departments and units across campus. Services include: collection, analysis, dissemination, and management of alumni and development information; documentation of donor intentions and restrictions; and stewardship of the University’s donors. AEA staff and departments are critical to advancing the University’s fundraising efforts supporting faculty excellence, student access, interdisciplinary programs, capital projects and other institutional priorities.
