In order to meet the needs of our students and campus community, CSU Dominguez Hills welcomes strategic partnerships with corporations that are mutually beneficial. Internships, employee recruitment, applied research, alumni partnerships and continuing education programs are just a few ways this can be accomplished.
Corporations may also invest in the university's growth by providing philanthropic support for student scholarships, academic programs, facility enhancements, and endowments. By partnering with the university, companies gain access to a talented and hard working student body, and our students benefit through engaged learning and invaluable real-world experience.

Supporting Applied Research

Organizations can contribute in a variety of ways, such as helping to define topics of interest or providing sites for field-based research. Your support of faculty research helps to ensure that the research is addressing contemporary business problems that are important to you.
Service Opportunities - Advisory Committees and Boards
Volunteer opportunities are important to corporate and industry professionals, and important to the university.

Make a Difference with Financial Support
Corporate giving programs and foundations provide important financial support for worthwhile initiatives at the university, such as student scholarships, campus programs or faculty research. Contact the Office of Development to discuss how your organization can become a university partner.
Athletic Sponsorship Opportunities
Corporate partnerships and advertising opportunities provide crucial support to the Toros Athletics programs. Contact the Director of Athletics to discuss opportunities.
Sponsorship supports a heightened corporate image, brand awareness and the potential for increased business, while demonstrating social responsibility and community involvement. This recognition can be achieved through event or program sponsorship, scholarship gifts, and naming opportunities.
In order to provide the best learning environment for our students, the university must consistently update its physical plant and equipment. This is an expensive challenge and one that increasingly relies on private support. An investment in capital enhancements ensures that teaching and research facilities are available and can provide substantial recognition for corporate supporters.
Endowment gifts provide many opportunities to merge our donors' interests with the needs and objectives of the university. Endowments are gifts held in perpetuity and invested in a manner that protects the principal from inflation. The investment income provides a stable funding source for such purposes as scholarships, professorships, lecture series, and research centers. In order to guarantee that the income from an endowment will be sufficient to achieve the donor's goals, minimum support levels have been established.
CSU Dominguez Hills welcomes financial support through employee gift matching programs. These programs not only increase the financial benefits to the university, but also generate corporate support that enhances the interest and commitment of employees.
Furnishing university facilities, classrooms and laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment, computer hardware and software, books, furnishings, artifacts and art ensures our students the best opportunities for hands-on, real-world learning.
