Be part of something special

Welcome to Boston University’s home page for advancement recruiting. We in Development & Alumni Relations (DAR) have built—and are continuing to build—an outstanding team of advancement professionals and support staff. Why? Because together, we are in the midst of an enormous challenge: preparing for the second comprehensive campaign in the history of the University.

We’re thinking big

Launched in September 2012, Choose to Be Great, BU’s first comprehensive campaign, reached record breaking success. Going above and beyond the original goal of $1 billion, we ended up raising over $1.85 billion for the University. In the process, we also dramatically increased alumni engagement. This was thanks to our dedicated, creative, and diverse staff.

The wind is at our backs

We have the full support of President Bob Brown, who is himself an experienced campaigner. Our new Senior Vice President, Karen Engelbourg, is a highly respected advancement professional and was a pivotal player behind the success of the University’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign. The University is in excellent financial shape and we have the resources we need to make the second campaign an even greater success than the first.
