Corporate and Foundation Relations

Corporate Relations

Our Corporate Relations team works with organizations to build mutually beneficial partnerships that connect business and industry to university initiatives. Our team collaborates with many Ohio State academic and administrative units to develop positive long-term relationships with our corporate partners. In return, we provide our partners with the opportunity to collaborate with our world-class faculty and staff, as well as our outstanding students, who are preparing to become the leaders of tomorrow's business and civic communities.

Corporations that partner with Ohio State have the opportunity to:

  • Strengthen ties to the nation’s largest university
  • Support and access innovative research
  • Contribute to the community and enhance brand profile
  • Play a leading role in the region’s economic development
  • Secure a prominent role in attracting Ohio State’s talented and diverse graduates to the workforce.
