Development/Alumni Systems

ITS supports the following systems, which provide data related to development and alumni relations activities at U-M.

Donor & Alumni Relationship Tool (DART) System

DART provides the authoritative source for alumni addresses, prospect management, and gift processing for the university. DART contains data regarding individuals, corporations, and foundations who support the development effort at U-M. It is used by the Office of Development, as well as by development staff across the university. DART has interfaces to the M-Pathways Student Administration, Human Resources Management, and Financial Systems.

U-M Data Warehouse

Data for reporting from the DART system is available in the Development data set, which is part of the U-M Data Warehouse. Users can access the data by running predefined queries or by creating ad hoc queries. BusinessObjects is the supported query and reporting tool used to access the U-M Data Warehouse.

Online Engagement System (BBIS)

Alumni and donors are able to update their biographical data (phone, address, etc.), view their giving history and make pledge payments.
