The Corporate Partners Program connects business leaders’ expertise with the research excellence of UCLA students and faculty to develop, discuss and disseminate best practices that enhance sustainability.
The program fosters interactive relationships between companies, UCLA experts, and students through panel speakers, networking events, and collaborative research. Each year a focal topic is selected by the membership which is the center of programming for the academic year. Two annual symposiums bring together leaders in the field and the membership to exchange information. Smaller breakfast roundtables with the Director of IoES serve to troubleshoot issues presented by the membership.
The program emphasizes the inclusion of students through research projects and career development opportunities. Members have early access to the next generation of the workforce.
