The Office of Development is charged with raising philanthropic support for the University through private funds.
These gifts help bridge the gap between state and federal funding and the funds necessary to maintain and further UL Lafayette as a University of excellence. With financial support from alumni and friends, the University can:
- Provide opportunities for students to earn an education
- Help undergraduates afford to stay on campus
- Retain faculty members and coaches in a competitive market
- Improve campus, academic programs, and the University's prestige
