 About Us

 

The Institutional Advancement (IA) Office is the fundraising, marketing and development arm of the University of the Western Cape. It supports the university's teaching, research and public service missions in four ways: provides quality marketing materials that enhance the institution's image; maintains institutions image online through its online platforms, responds in a timely manner to requests for information from the media and the general public; forges partnerships with corporate and civic organizations; maintains relationships with the university's alumni.

IA is a service department providing strategic, tactical and operational input across the University donor relations, alumni relations, media liaison, communications, marketing, branding, online practices and eventing.

The Department falls within the Rector’s line and reports to the Pro Vice-Chancellor. IA Units work closely with other service departments that are also tasked with advancing UWC through recruitment and student experience. All activities are aligned to the core objectives of the IOP with the end result being to generate funding, grow loyalty and pride, recruitment of excellent staff and students in order to attract partners and funders so that UWC may enhance its credibility and continue to grow in a sustainable manner.
