Arts & Sciences Advancement

In Arts & Sciences Advancement, we support the University’s mission through fundraising and other programs that promote awareness, understanding, involvement, commitment and advocacy on the part of our constituents. Our purpose is to secure financial and human resources to assist Arts & Sciences and Washington University in fulfilling its mission of teaching, research and community service.

We're here to partner with your department.
