A department of University Advancement, the Corporate Relations team is a central liaison for establishing mutually rewarding relationships with corporations, associations, and other non-federal entities.

Corporate relations officers collaborate with members of the faculty and staff to:

  • Identify corporate funding opportunities
  • Facilitate meaningful, productive conversations with company representatives
  • Develop competitive proposals to national funders
  • Navigate JMU’s internal grant processes

We work with leading corporations to:

  • Find where company values and mission intersect with university initiatives and priorities
  • Establish strategic partnerships with members of the faculty and staff
  • Create brand awareness among students in related fields
  • Develop a skilled, diverse workforce

Currently, the university is in the midst of a $200 million comprehensive campaign to fund five campuswide, nationally relevant goals. Organizational support plays a crucial role in Unleashed: The Campaign for James Madison University.
