Corporate and Foundation Relations
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations helps institutions design strategic partnerships with Southern Utah University that create mutually beneficial relationships and results. These wide-ranging collaborations include philanthropic giving opportunities for academic excellence, campus enhancement and expansion, enriching student living, community engagement, and general support. We identify partnership opportunities and make introductions to University faculty and leadership. SUU depends on funding from corporations and foundations as it strives to fulfill its mission and commitment to academic excellence, through the University's outstanding student body, faculty and programs.
