Faculty External Partnerships

Sometimes collaborating with external organizations is the best way to create new knowledge, maximize the impact of your innovations or find opportunities for your graduate students. We work with faculty to identify external organizations that meet your partnership needs, advise on how to best leverage research collaborations and help you connect with external organizations.
