Corporate and Foundation Relations

Advancing the University of Dayton


Corporate partners and private foundations help the University of Dayton optimize opportunities to support student success and propel academic innovation and faculty research. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to seek new, creative ventures and solutions that can be funded by corporate and foundation partners and provide a mutually beneficial strategic return on that investment. Through these partnerships, not only do students gain practical experience and develop career or research skills, the collective impact is greater than if each partner would have acted alone.
