Corporate Partnerships

Kean University is pleased to be introducing opportunities to build industry-academic partnerships within our region. Corporate partnerships, ranging from a variety of sectors, have a tremendous impact on education, the economy and our community through establishing endowed scholarships and professorships, various branding naming opportunities, in-kind gifts of equipment/technology and software, event sponsorships and collaborations for advanced research.

As a growing national trend, there are exclusive benefits companies and corporations can receive including:

  • Building internship/co-op programs
  • Building their future workforce
  • Access to Faculty for research collaborations, presentations, and seminars
  • Certificate programs for employee career development
  • Community growth through service projects and volunteerism
  • Mentorship programs
  • Stewardship and recognition through various communications including newsletters and the annual report

We welcome conversations with industry leaders to discuss how partnerships can be forged and customized to meet the needs of your company and achieve your philanthropic goals.


Private Foundations are a pillar of Kean’s rich history and growth for our future. At the Kean University Foundation, we partner with KU faculty and administrators to develop thoughtful and strategic foundation proposals to help meet Foundations’ guidelines and philanthropic priorities. Our detailed reporting provides Foundations with robust information and outcomes from the initiatives which they choose to support, and we value establishing mutually beneficial, ongoing relationships.
