​Resources for Faculty and University Leaders

Corporate Relations provides support to faculty and university leaders in the process of corporate prospect identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship. These include local businesses, corporations and corporate foundations. The Corporate Relations staff works to develop funding for university initiatives, school priorities, programmatic initiatives and individual research projects.

Clearance to approach a corporation or corporate foundation for funding should be obtained in advance from the Corporate Relations office. Clearance is needed to:

  • coordinate the university’s solicitation interactions with corporations and corporate foundations
  • avoid duplicative solicitations or violation of corporate funding guidelines
  • enhance the university’s opportunities for securing support
Requesting clearance can be accomplished by calling or sending an email to the Corporate Relations staff, who will respond promptly with an answer or to discuss the request.

To discuss corporate support in more detail, please contact the Office of Corporate Relations.
