University of Utah students at the Student Philanthropy and Engagement Center (SPEC) show our school pride by making connections on and off campus. From the Advancement Office, located in the John and Maria Price Theatre Arts Building on campus, we make outbound calls to update records (Update Yours Here), build relationships, share campus updates, and ask for philanthropic support to causes and projects at the U. Our team of sixty student callers enable alumni, donors, parents, and friends of the university community to make a difference anywhere at the U that they are passionate about.
Because the University of Utah receives only a small portion of its budget from the State, other sources of revenue including tuition, grants, and private gifts are critical in bridging the gap. Individual gifts quickly add up and make an impact on the high-quality education with distinguished faculty and a signature Utah student experience.
Answering a SPEC student call is an opportunity to make a difference for students, research, health care, the arts, and the greater University of Utah and University of Utah Health community.
