Partnership Opportunities

The Hume Center can support a number of different relationships with industry sponsors, based on the nature of the collaboration.

Academic Affiliates Program

The Hume Center affiliates program provides industry partners a direct mechanism for establishing a relationship with the Hume Center, and supporting its educational programs through an annual gift. For more information see the Academic Affiliates Program page.

Corporate Philanthropy

Many holistic industry/university partnerships involve some combination of corporate philanthropy and sponsored research programs. Examples range from scholarship endowments to equipment support for senior capstone projects. For more information on giving, see the NSI Giving website.
