The Institutional Advancement Division includes Communications as well as the Office of Development.
Communications is dedicated to providing best-in-class communications and engagement leadership to enhance accessible educational opportunities and support the Gwinnett Technical College vision and mission. This department provides communication guidelines and materials to internal and external audiences. A further responsibility of Communications is to enhance the reputation and protect the image of Gwinnett Technical College. The support provided encompasses branding and strategic communication including, but not limited to, advertising, media relations, publications, social media, and web development.
The Office of Development’s role is to work with partners, both public and private as well as individuals and alumni, to provide additional resources to advance the work of Gwinnett Technical College. The department oversees both the Gwinnett Tech Foundation, Inc. and the Gwinnett Tech Alumni Association.
The Gwinnett Tech Foundation exists for the sole purpose of helping Gwinnett Tech and its students succeed through financial support including student scholarships. The Foundation’s chief priority is academic enrichment through a wide range of scholarships, staff and faculty development, capital initiatives, as well as enhancement of the college’s programs and services. Gwinnett Tech Foundation, Inc. is a separate tax-exempt, non-profit organization that provides volunteer leadership and assistance, through a Board of Trustees comprised of community leaders, to the College in its development and fund-raising efforts. The Foundation remains the primary avenue through which gifts to the College may be accepted. The role of the Foundation is to ensure contributions are managed skillfully to maximize value and fulfill donor wishes. Gifts may be designated for a specific purpose or undesignated and will be applied to best help meet the College’s current needs.
