Position Summary

University Relations and Development (URAD) at San Diego State University is committed to upholding, as a foundational belief, a supportive working environment of inclusion that values, honors, and respects all members of our team and the University community. We strive to engage in and promote the fair and equitable recruitment and training of URAD staff members, develop meaningful relationships with all groups in our diverse campus community, and share philanthropic stories that highlight the impact of and opportunity for diverse giving by our SDSU community.

URAD firmly believes that an inclusive environment facilitates critical and creative thinking, and that differences in identities, values, beliefs, and perspectives are fundamental to our mission of generating philanthropic support for the university and its student body. Within URAD, the term diversity implies a respect for all and an understanding of individual differences and other characteristics protected by applicable state or federal law, so that all members of the community are treated at all times with dignity and respect. We value diversity and inclusion in the working environment and believe it is vital to the fulfillment of the university's mission.

URAD had another record-setting fundraising year with $133.2M total raised. Other superlatives in 2020-2021 include: 19,763 total gifts, 2,207 scholarships awarded and 3,527 first-time donors. The latest fundraising success can be credited to the university's goal of building a world-class university campus, research center, and multi-use stadium in Mission Valley to serve higher education, the public good, and the community's goals and aspirations.

Under the direct supervision of the Senior Director of Development for Principal Gifts, the Development Coordinator provides professional administrative support, project management and event coordination as needed for development teams at SDSU.
