Corporate and Foundation Relations

Cultivating relationships is important to us. We view our partnerships with corporations and charitable foundations as an extension of our Ole Miss family. These partnerships are mutually beneficial. They expand the academic and innovative reach of our faculty and students by aligning their research and studies with your business goals. Our office exists as a centralized, university-wide point of contact to support partnership development.

Corporate Partnerships

We specialize in figuring out what businesses might need from our faculty, staff and students, and how our university community might benefit from business partnerships. We create long-term relationships that allow for cross-pollination, both in the corporate sector and within our 11 schools and colleges. This helps companies be more innovative and profitable, helps Ole Miss stay on the cutting edge of the real world, and exposes students to unique opportunities.

Foundation Partnerships

Growing a university, whether new buildings or ground-breaking research, takes support, and Ole Miss is fortunate that many private foundations find us such fertile ground for their funds and expertise. If you are running a foundation, whether local, regional and national, we are eager to talk about how you can help shape the future of this place. In the past, these partnerships have supported academic, research, capital, and service projects, in the process building comprehensive, sustainable relationships with your foundation.
