Regional Development

Villanova University has regional advancement offices serving the Tri-State Metro, Mid-Atlantic/Southeast, New England, Midwest and West regions to engage alumni throughout the Nova Nation. 

We invite alumni to stay connected with Villanova from wherever you are. Our regional directors, listed below, are happy to discuss how you can support Villanova to further advance the University’s mission.

Check out our Blue and White Spotlights, updated monthly, to get to know Villanovans in your region and why they choose to support the University.

University Advancement opened its first regional development office in midtown Manhattan because of Villanova’s large contingent of alumni, parents and friends living and working in the New York and tri-state area. Since its opening in March 2011, this office has served as the cornerstone of the University’s regional development strategy. The Tri-State Metro office is located at 405 Lexington Avenue, New York City.
