Corporate Opportunities

Join the conversation.

From sustainability and alternative energy to economics and the science of creativity, USC Dornsife faculty and students are tackling real-world issues that are paramount to industry.  As these issues are debated in classrooms, researched in laboratories and presented at conferences, your company has the opportunity to join in the conversation.  Collaborate with us and benefit from the vast intellectual resources of a major research university located in the thriving metropolis that is Los Angeles.

Partnership with USC Dornsife gives your company access to our talented and dynamic student body, opportunities to interact with faculty at the pinnacle of their fields, and the ability to work hand-in-hand with our many K-12 and local community outreach programs.  Additional avenues of support include sponsorship of innovative research, establishing a fund for student enrichment or research, creating an endowed professorship or chair, supporting the construction of new buildings or infrastructure upgrades, or participating in a matching-gift program by matching employee contributions.

Please contact the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations to explore these opportunities and learn more about how your company can partner with USC Dornsife.
