The Clark School's
The Clark School's Corporate Partners program helps organizations establish the closest possible relationship with the school—a relationship in which our partners gain special access to Clark School students, faculty, and alumni and our educational and research programs, and provide direct support for those programs.
Corporate Partners foster, and share in, the school's rapid advancement, help the school contribute to engineering knowledge and the engineering workforce, and in the process advance their own organizational initiatives—from recruitment, to research, to diversity. We encourage you to consider establishing this unique relationship for your organization. For more information please contact us.
