Contact Advancement – Shorter University

The Office of University Advancement and Alumni exists to support the educational mission of Shorter University and its students, faculty and staff. Our goal is to help the university always move toward further excellence by strengthening the donor giving base of the university and by developing lasting relationships with alumni, friends, area businesses, corporations and foundations. Through the work of staff and key volunteers, the office seeks to increase financial support for endowment, scholarships, annual operating expenses and capital improvement projects.

Our offices are located at 105 Shorter Avenue in Rome in the historic Thornwood House.
