Employers, organizations, and corporations who partner with INFO through the INFO Corporate Partnership Program receive a unique opportunity to connect with the college’s students and alumni through capstone projects, events, and our Careers Listserv. Our graduates are highly sought after for internships and jobs due to the unique education they receive combining theory, practical skills, and a changemaking mentality. They have gone on to revamp the New York Times UX, lead the American Library Association, run social media for the United Nations, and tackle the information infrastructure of Chicago.
The INFO Corporate Partnership Program goes beyond just creating a pipeline between employers and students for hire—it establishes an impactful relationship between Corporate Partners and the college’s students, faculty, and leadership. Together, we partner in shaping the future of the information science industry.
INFO Corporate Partners will meet with the Director of External Relations to develop engagement plans designed to address the partner’s objectives. Engagement plans include meeting regularly with the Dean and participating in our intellectual community, influencing curricula, recruiting our students, and other investments furthering INFO’s academic programs and research initiatives.
If you are interested in becoming a Corporate Partner, please contact David Loshin, INFO Lead for Careers & External Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
