Corporate Affiliates Program.

The URI Business Engagement Center has helped entities on campus develop corporate affiliates programs which allow for more robust partnerships with the University.

Graduate School of Oceanography

The University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) is recognized as Rhode Island’s center for marine studies and cutting-edge research and outreach.  As such, GSO has developed a Corporate Affiliates Program in order to provide business leaders an inside perspective into the groundbreaking research, technology, and initiatives taking place across the campus.  As members of the affiliates program, companies will be given first access to innovative research and technical developments, as well as the opportunity to engage with leading faculty, scientists, staff, students, and resources for mutual collaboration.

The College of Pharmacy has launched a Corporate Affiliates Program to provide business leaders an internal perspective into the groundbreaking research and state-of-the-art technology happening at the College’s new $75 million facility, as well as the potential investment opportunity at the College and throughout the University.  Affiliates will be given priority access to the latest innovation and discoveries and will have an unparalleled opportunity to collaborate with faculty and provide input regarding current and future initiatives.  They will also enjoy the privilege of engaging with distinguished faculty members and outstanding students who will graduate as in-demand experts on drug therapy, optimizing the use of medication for the benefit of patients.
