History / Biographical Note

History

The Office of Alumni and Development (formerly known as University Development and Alumni Relations or UDAR) upholds the mission of Columbia University by maximizing useful philanthropic gift and grant support in ways that bring benefit to the University, satisfaction to its donors, and fulfillment to its faculty, students and staff. All individual school and constituent alumni offices report to this office, which itself reports to the University's central administration. The Office of Alumni Relations and Development is responsible for the running of the Columbia Alumni Association, the Columbia Campaign, and publishing Columbia, the University's quarterly magazine for alumni, which was founded in 1975. The magazine is sent free of charge to all alumni of Columbia University in the U.S. and abroad, as well as to faculty, staff, and friends. In 2009 UDAR rebranded itself as the Office of Alumni and Development when it moved into the newly built Columbia Alumni Center on 113th Street.
