Corporate Partners

Connecting Your Business to the Westminster Network

Problem Solving. Communication. Critical Thinking. Adaptability.

These are the skills 21st century employers need in their workforce. At Westminster, we’ve tailored our educational paradigm to meet those needs.

For over a century, Westminster College has provided transformational learning experiences for students. Now, Westminster is faced with the unique challenge of engaging its business community in the lives and learning of our students. Recruiting new students, fundraising for student learning initiatives, student internships, job placement, and alumni engagement are all necessary components to facilitate a high-impact Westminster experience.

Individually, many departments across campus have worked to alleviate the burden of these challenges on the institution. Never before have these departments come together for an integrated approach to business engagement.

Enter: The Corporate Partnership Program

Westminster College is pleased to offer corporate partnerships to engage and enhance your business. To encourage and create a mutually beneficial relationship, we seek to create value for your organization by taking advantage of the multitude of benefits Westminster has to offer your business.

Become a Corporate Partner

A Unique Approach to Partnerships

At Westminster, we are celebrated for our ability to educate the whole person. Our students are not “numbers”, and we treat each student as an individual, working to meet each person’s unique educational needs.

We want to bring that same approach to your business.

We have the ability to tailor our partnership with your business to meet your particular needs. Would you like to focus on specific skills training for your workforce? We can do that. Would a tuition benefit package help to provide financial relief to allow your employees to further – or complete – their degrees? Let’s talk. Would you like to direct your corporate philanthropy to creating a better community? We can show you specific, meaningful opportunities to give. Moreover, we have smart, qualified, and positive students and graduates who are able to meet your needs for internships and a strong workforce.


We'd like to work with you.

The Westminster community is close and word spread quickly about great organizations to work and intern for. An Alumni/Employee and Faculty Reception is an opportunity to bring Westminster faculty to your organization for a tour and discussion about your unique needs for an educated workforce, and Westminster’s curriculum and learning goals. This is followed by a reception where your HR team, management, and Westminster faculty are joined by your Westminster College Alumni employees. Faculty will see the success of their former students. Student will see the faculty who impacted their success, and both can work to enhance and strengthen the brands and partnership of our organizations. This also gives faculty an opportunity to refer current students or other alumni to your alumni employees for informational interviews.
