UCSC strives to embrace diversity in all its forms; it strives to be an inclusive community that fosters an open, enlightened & productive environment.
University Relations (UR) supports the teaching, research, and public service of UC Santa Cruz by making and keeping deep, heartfelt connections. Building enduring relationships among students, alumni, faculty, donors, and others is the lifeblood of our work and helps to make UC Santa Cruz a thriving community of knowledge, inquiry, public service, and social mobility.
To support this unique campus, UR is organized into six units: Communications & Marketing, Alumni Engagement, Government and Community Relations, Philanthropy, Advancement Services, and University Relations Operations.
We are a welcoming group of ambitious and creative professionals pursuing our mission in support of the university's overarching purpose. We take our work seriously because we care - but we don't take ourselves too seriously! The University Relations culture is lively and dynamic; we value collaboration; and our staff are resourceful, enthusiastic, and hard-working.
The division is a fun, friendly, and open place, and staff are supportive of and positive about one another's goals and aspirations. We often jump in to help where needed, rolling up our sleeves to get the job done. We dare to approach challenges as opportunities. Our custom is to seek creative ways to overcome obstacles, at times with limited resources, while keeping our eye on the objective: helping students achieve their goals, providing crucial public service, and advancing life-changing research and discovery.
Under the supervision of the Director of Development, the Development Assistant carries out a broad range of administrative, fundraising, outreach, event, and programmatic activities.
