Advance is the administrative system that Dartmouth uses to maintain information on alumni, parents and others engaged in the life of the College. It allows the College to identify and cultivate individual and corporate relationships, manage communication information with constituents, record gifts and pledges, and maintain important demographic information on Dartmouth alumni.

Reporting on Advance data is from the data warehouse, rather than the Advance application. 

Documents in Advance are stored in the OnBase system. 

If you are only accessing Advance, not other systems like OnBase, then a VPN connection is not required, both from on and off campus connections.
