Understanding Our Purpose

Making Connections for Companies

Our corporate relations team works to understand the needs and priorities of Indiana University’s external partners and aligns them with the strengths of faculty, staff, and students.

As a front-line resource for companies seeking to engage with IU, our team creates and furthers the connections between industry and academia. The partnerships we build focus on elevating IU, our faculty, our students, and the organizations with which we work.

Whether your firm is interested in collaborative research with nationally recognized faculty and their students, identifying new technology/commercialization opportunities, customized executive education and training for your workforce, attracting top-tier talent, or identifying strategic giving possibilities, we work with you to shape a meaningful and unique alliance. Indiana University is the perfect partner.

Making Connections for Faculty

Support, resources, and partnerships are critical for IU faculty and researchers to develop ideas and bring research to life. Understanding the practical applications of what they’re learning in the classroom or laboratory can inspire students to take their work to the next level. Our corporate relations team supports IU faculty by actively creating dialogue and bolstering the seamlessness between academia and industry. We are here to help you make connections with companies, arrange and host visits for partner organizations, connect students with industry-based experiences through collaborative projects and internships, identify subject-matter experts to serve as guest speakers, and more. Contact us today to explore what may be possible.
