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.

Support for Students

Corporations and foundations can help ensure the development of an educated work force

SUU is committed to sustaining a diverse and talented student body. Financial aid, scholarship and fellowship support enhance SUU’s ability to attract and enroll exceptional students, regardless of their financial circumstances. Increased aid creates more opportunities for deserving students to achieve their academic and career goals.

Support for Faculty

Corporations and foundations can establish valuable relationships with leading scholars and researchers.

SUU aims to pursue critical resources to retain its current gifted faculty and to seek out distinguished educators to build upon the work of predecessors. The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations links faculty with corporations and foundations, creating and strengthening strategic alliances that support faculty research and teaching, and provides funders the ability to influence education that addresses today's issues. Knowledge gained through these partnerships benefit both the institution and the University, enhancing the community's understanding of corporations' and foundations' strategic goals and missions.

Support for Programs

Corporations and foundations can partner with Southern Utah University to benefit the community and foster innovation.

SUU’s mission is to provide a personalized, integrative and experiential learning environment designed to prepare students to become fully engaged and productive members of society. This mission will result in SUU being nationally recognized as a premier institution of learning known for enabling its students to honor thought in all its finest forms, achieve excellence in their chosen field, and create positive change in the world.
