Raiser's Edge - the UTAS CRM

The CRM used at UTAS is Raiser's Edge.

It is the UTAS corporate customer relationship management tool supporting fund raising, event management and marketing to alumni and friends of the University. Data includes graduates, friends and supporters, and may also include staff and ex-staff. Graduate data is uploaded from the student administration database after graduation and friends and supporters' data is collected through their association with the University and its activities. All data is secure and is used by the University, in accordance with privacy legislation, solely for its own purposes. Access is controlled by the Advancement Office within the Vice-Chancellor's Division.

UTAS is bound by the provisions of the Personal Information Protection Act 2004 (Tas) and the University's Privacy Policy in all respects and in particular will not release personal information for marketing.

Alumni may request access to personal details collected by UTAS in relation to themselves.
