The Corporate Partners Program was launched in the 2009-2010 academic year as way to connect academia with business. Initially workshop panels were held each quarter on a different topic ranging from sustainability reporting to green building. These events were frequently co-hosted with other schools, departments and programs at UCLA such as NetImpact, Ziman Center for Real Estate, and the Anderson School of Management. A sampling of these events can be found here.
This method of operation did not fully meet the needs of the member organizations nor did it maximize the full suite of strengths of the UCLA student body. So, in 2016 the program underwent a refresh to improve the programming to increase impact, leverage the wealth of skills of the students, and better service the members. More information about the new offerings can be found here.
