The Office of Corporate Relations

The Office of Corporate Relations works to engage business and industry with the University of South Carolina through mutually beneficial relationships. These relationships with the University and specific colleges, schools, and units across campus involve strategic opportunities such as: student recruiting, faculty research, industry alliance programs, service on advisory councils and steering committees, events, conferences, executive education, and corporate philanthropy.


We understand that private support means the difference between a good university program and a nationally competitive program. For this reason our corporate partners and investors are critically important to our mission.


We invite you to explore these opportunities by contacting us to develop a philanthropic investment strategy that supports your corporate goals.
