new growth on college row

Advancement encompasses the Chief Advancement Officer, Advancement Communications, Advancement Operations, Alumni and Parent Programs (APP), the Amherst Fund, Gift Planning, Leadership Giving. We work to advance the Amherst College mission, help to raise awareness of the College and its goals, and encourage generosity in Amherst’s external constituencies. We accomplish this by nurturing long-term and mutually-enriching relationships with and among constituents, including alumni, families and friends.

Amherst Advancement fosters connections between alumni and the College, creating more and better opportunities for student research, internships, and service.  

Where can you find us?

Advancement is housed across two buildings: Pontypool (22 Snell Street) and Smith House (22 Hitchcock Road).
