Development & Campaign Communications (DevCom) is a communications-services department within Boston University Development & Alumni Relations (DAR). We help our DAR colleagues create marketing tools in a variety of print and electronic media—including new media, a sub-department of its own within Development Communications. We are especially committed to helping our front-line fundraisers do their jobs effectively and efficiently. We also work with our colleagues at schools, colleges, and other departments across the University as they create their own specialized development tools.

The DevCom team is also creating a new and growing library of products related to The Campaign for Boston University. We take responsibility for ensuring that all DAR-generated materials conform both to University identity standards and DAR’s own high quality standards of writing, design, and production.

On this website, you can:

  • Find links to some helpful tools, both DAR-based and also some outside of DAR. For example: You can consult a collection of sample proposals and gift terms on the Staff Hub (maintained by several groups within DAR). You can also access and professionally print customizable DevCom-generated “print on demand” templates—for things like invitations, save-the-date notes, and informational “one-sheets”—through the University’s central self-service print center.
