Program Goals

  • Create a collaborative partnership with key departments at Wilmington College who have ties to the local and regional business community. Develop a centralized approach to how the college identifies opportunities to connect with the local and regional business community. This includes sponsorship and funding initiatives, internships, and developing on-campus learning opportunities that connect students, faculty and local business leaders.
  • Obtain a better understanding of who is currently reaching out to the local and regional business community from Wilmington College and how we can maximize our efforts with a collaborative and centralized approach.
  • Develop comprehensive sponsorship opportunities with local and regional business partners that will raise additional funds for the college, provide unique sponsorship opportunities (could include on-campus programs) for local and regional business partners and identify ways to connect students, faculty and local business leaders through these ongoing partnerships and “Hands-On” learning opportunities.
