Welcome to Shorter University Advancement!
Shorter’s University Advancement team strives to serve this university by glorifying Christ in all we do. Through our focus on a Christ-centered learning environment for all, we aim to “advance” the University’s mission ofTransforming Lives through Christ through the achievement of our priorities, goals, and objectives focused on the Shorter Experience. Our three primary purposes are:
- Engaging alumni, parents, friends, and the community in the life of the University
- Raising the funds necessary to maximize the Shorter Experience for all students and provide the opportunity to Transform Lives through Christ
- Enhancing the brand and reputation of Shorter University
These are accomplished collaboratively with our Shorter colleagues, volunteer leaders, and the loyal alumni, friends, businesses and foundations that generously invest in the Lord’s work at Shorter.
It is our hope in University Advancement that, through building relationships, we will be able to provide future support to ensure the Shorter Experience continues for another century to come. As it says in John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease,” – this is our cry. With a dedication to Christ-centered learning and a focus on growing the Lord’s kingdom, our motivation will be to glorify God and not man – He will increase and we will decrease.
Thank you for your support of Shorter University and God Bless!
