Find Your Purpose. Make An Impact.

Boston College, the first institution of higher education to operate in the city of Boston, is today
among the nation’s foremost R1 universities, a leader in the liberal arts, scientific inquiry, and
student formation. While being true to its roots, BC is committed to being the world’s leading
Jesuit, Catholic university. Those ambitious goals distinguish Boston College from its peers in
higher education worldwide and reflect its desire to work for the transformation of the world.

Based on a fundamental Jesuit tenet of developing the whole person, University Advancement is
large enough to benefit from many campus resources, yet small enough to be agile and creative
in supporting all associates. With an average tenure of close to 10 years at Boston College, our
250-person centralized organizational structure offers a variety of roles across fundraising,
alumni relations, operations, and communications and engagement. We invest in the
professional growth of every staff member through individual and team-based programs.
Likewise, we aim to attract the very best, seeking team members who are as ambitious and as
committed to our team as we are. We value a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
while actively promoting team members who contribute to the success of University Advancement.

Cadigan Alumni Center

'Home Away from Home'

The Cadigan Alumni Center is a welcoming, state-of-the-art facility open to all Boston College alumni, parents, and friends.

Located on the Brighton Campus at 2121 Commonwealth Avenue (directly adjacent to the former cardinal’s residence), the building features spaces designed specifically for alumni and parent visits, including a special guest office and a beautiful, sunlit atrium that provides a warm and relaxed setting where friends can reconnect with one another during visits to the Heights.

The center, reconstructed from the former Chancery of the Archdiocese of Boston, is named in honor of proud BC alumnus and longtime University patron Patrick F. Cadigan ’57, Ph.D., and his family’s gift to the Light the World campaign.
