Campus and Community - Stronger Together

Together, we get more accomplished. From ongoing partnerships to project-specific collaborations, we are solving problems, conducting research and development, bringing forward innovative solutions, constructing buildings for community use, and creating pipelines between regional employers and our talented faculty and students. Successful collaborations often being with a casual conversation or questioning, “What if?”

Office of Corporate and Community Partnerships
