Office of Advancement

The Office of Advancement is responsible for the University’s philanthropy and alumni relations activities.

The Alumni & Community Relations team works to establish and maintain positive relationships between the University, its alumni and other community members such as former staff to provide lifelong value to the Curtin community. The team aims to enhance the University’s reputation and encourage all alumni and friends of Curtin to support the University and strengthen the future of Curtin. We engage with alumni and the community through events, online communications, social media and publications.

The Development team is responsible for all aspects of the University’s philanthropic relationships and activities. We engage with alumni, businesses, community and foundations to generate philanthropic support for University projects and initiatives both locally and internationally. We engage with alumni globally through events, multi-channel communications and the alumni benefits program.

The Advancement Services team maintains and enhances the alumni database and associated systems, researches alumni and other contacts, provides briefings for meetings and events, and works to enhance our knowledge and understanding of alumni and supporters. We also provide advice and support to University groups regarding capturing and using alumni data.
