Institutional Relations

Institutional Relations helps Saint Peter’s to secure external support for broad-based University initiatives. The office works with external collaborators such as foundations, corporations, nonprofits, and state, county and municipal public funding agencies. Projects can support faculty, curriculum, equipment, facilities, program development or strategic priorities impacting many different aspects of the University’s operations.

Institutional philanthropy is crucial to Saint Peter’s. Every contribution is measured by individual stories, lives changed and dreams realized. Faculty and administrators are encouraged to seek external financial support for un-budgeted initiatives. Grant or gift awards can also bring professional and academic recognition.

Institutional Relations also leads Saint Peter’s corporate partnership initiative.

It works with companies, community partners and government agencies to develop mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations. These collaborations play an important role in education, research and outreach. Our students and alumni are a key part of the region’s talent pipeline.
