The Corporate Relations staff establishes strategic and
mutually-beneficial partnerships with company representatives to
link the needs of the University with their philanthropic missions.
These alliances support a variety of initiatives, including funding
for academic programs, in-kind gifts, faculty/industry
collaborations, recruitment/hiring, lectureships and executive
Companies that match
gifts also help double or even triple the impact of giving
from alumni and friends.
The Foundations Relations staff is responsible for researching,
identifying, developing and presenting projects and programs that
increase foundation grant support University-wide.
The staff works closely with faculty and administrators to match
the mission and philanthropic goals of a foundation with such
special initiatives as the Creative Writing Institute, student
mentoring, endowment support for St. Thomas More
Church and the interdisciplinary Committee for Latin American &
Caribbean Studies (CLACS).
