Strategic Partnerships

The AMSP team forges strategic, long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with companies and external partners who believe in the USD mission.

The team is responsible for coordinating a comprehensive partnership marketing program while also serving as the central clearance point for philanthropic requests made to companies. The team guides inquiries from industry leaders — about collaborations, professional education, internships, co-branding and sponsorship opportunities, student recruitment, and other corporate requests — to appropriate USD programs, faculty and staff. The team also advises faculty, staff, advancement colleagues and other university personnel in identifying potential corporate funding sources, as well as provides assistance in preparing sponsorship plans and proposals. Alliances between USD and its corporate partners provide resources that support capital projects, scholarships, special events and other institutional priorities.
