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.
