Your students are your best advancement assets. They connect with your prospects, increase peer giving awareness, act as compelling institutional spokespeople, and express the most powerful gratitude to your most appreciated donors. Admissions departments have used these skills for years, but developing students into effective advancement representatives requires well-defined goals and thorough training.

Join us online to learn how to create a student foundation program that harnesses your students’ potential, pairs their skills with your shop’s vision, and supports their own professional goals. Using Kansas State’s program as a model, you will learn:

* The first five steps for starting your own effort
* Breaking down student roles and responsibilities
* Bringing and keeping students on board
* Creating and shaping your messaging
* Integrating results across your advancement operation
* Scaling solutions for your institutional setting


Advancement professionals (especially those in alumni relations and annual giving) charged with increasing engagement among students, alumni, and donors will learn how to create an ambassador program that builds intergenerational connections, expresses effective gratitude, and increases giving awareness.

Included with your registration is a packet of valuable resources: recruitment materials, job descriptions, training materials, and evaluation forms.
