University Development and Alumni Relations


Welcome to the intranet for NYU's Office for University Development and Alumni Relations.

UDAR is dedicated to soliciting the private funding necessary to support the strategic goals of the University in teaching, learning, and research. The personnel of UDAR work university-wide as well as within individual schools and colleges of the University to discover, motivate, cultivate, solicit, and steward alumni, parents, faculty, and friends for immediate, long-range, and future financial support, through gifts and pledges to the University, for critical operations such as student aid, faculty support, academic and research program development, and facilities and infrastructure. UDAR's endeavors raise funds for immediate University use and also for the University's endowment.

Within this website, UDAR personnel can find resources and information on a wide variety of topics ranging from our office's operations, through Advance database training, to University fundraising policies and draft gift agreements.

We will endeavor to keep the materials here up-to-date. Please bookmark this site, refer to it often, and review familiar items regularly to watch for the latest updates.
