Advancement & Development

Bradley Hall imageMount St. Mary's University is continually growing and changing with the times. We are balancing new and renovated spaces with the familiar sights and sounds that bring back the memories of our over two hundred year history.

The Advancement Office knows that the future of Mount St. Mary's is irrevocably tied to the generosity and energy of our alumni, parents and friends who help to support our mission. We work to ensure the community stays connected to the Mount and to assist you in making lasting connections in a simple and hassle-free way.

Advancement Services includes a team of support personnel responsible for maintaining the Mount's alumni and donor databases. This involves processing all gifts and pledges to the university and maintaining the biographic information in our databases.
