The Advancement and Community Engagement division supports USG’s mission of providing access to affordable, high-quality higher education, through a variety of outreach and development strategies, including marketing and communications; community and alumni relations; and fundraising to support student scholarships and other campus priorities. The division also works in collaboration with USG’s nine partner universities and the USG service centers.
The Marketing & Communications team elevates the awareness of the campus to the community and helps to support the recruitment and outreach efforts of USG’s nine partner universities. The team also offers marketing/communications and event support to the partner universities and other departments within USG.
Community Engagement efforts at USG involve building and servicing partnerships with Montgomery County’s public school system, local community colleges, employers, and non-profit organizations. Through these partnerships USG is able to meet the goal of developing the next generation of regional leaders.
Alumni Relations engages graduates of the university programs offered at USG and coordinates alumni events, volunteer opportunities, and profesional development initiatives.
Economic Development efforts at USG are focused on engaging local business, government and community leaders to learn about regional workforce demands and industry trends. USG is then able to create new academic programs and enhance existing programs to meet employer needs, while also helping to grow the region’s standing as an excellent place to do business.
