The Office of Corporate & Foundation Relations is a central university office that helps to foster relationships between Howard University and companies and private professional foundations. As part of the Office of Development & Alumni Relations, we help work hand-in-hand with Howard University’s schools and colleges to represent the university to corporate and foundation constituents and form partnerships to advance mutual goals that align wit the university’s research and teaching mission.
We can help companies and foundations navigate the university, find faculty and programs of interest, and arrange for campus meetings. We can also facilitate funding requests, awards, and reporting, and help illuminate campus research funding policies.
