CONNECTING OUR COMMUNITY
The role of the Advancement Office is to connect, inspire and build support for HKIS among our current community as well as our global alumni network. Our offices' core functions are Marketing & Communications, Alumni Relations, Development, and Community & Parent Engagement.
We thrive on telling the HKIS story and highlighting the incredible things happening in our community among our students, faculty, and alumni. And, we strive to deliver dynamic communications and programs as well as providing various engagement opportunities to build a committed and supportive community at HKIS.
