University of Melbourne Advancement

University of Melbourne Advancement aims to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between the University and its alumni, friends and benefactors. We’re responsible for the management of programs relating to University alumni and benefactors, along with providing services to, and with, Academic Divisions, the wider University and its affiliates.

University of Melbourne Advancement also led our 14-year fundraising initiative Believe – the Campaign for the University of Melbourne which ended in 2021.


We have a strong community of over 470,000 alumni worldwide. Stay connected with us and take advantage of the benefits and services at your disposal.
