This preconference option for Corporate Attendees is provided at no cost.
The NACRO Corporate Workshop brings together University and Technical Relations Professionals from companies for a half day of peer learning and networking. This Workshop is intended for professionals at all stages of their career. Those newer to the profession can learn from seasoned professionals, while more experience colleagues have the opportunity to hear how other companies are approaching University-Corporate Relations. There's always something new to learn and a new perspective to consider. University-Corporate Relations is not a 'one size fits all' approach because it must be responsive to the needs of the company, research priorities, recruiting foci, and students. This course provides a space for industry to converse among themselves, while discussing how University-Corporate Relations professionals operate and best practices that have led to success.
This course was designed with guidance from the Corporate side including:
- David Liaw, PhD, Enterprise Manager, Strategic University Partnerships, Northrop Grumman Corporation
- Tony Denhart, University Relations Leader, Global University Relations, GE
- Christina Spotts, Manager, University Relations Program, Deloitte
- Cynthia Murphy, Manager, University Partnerships and Association Relations at Chevron
- Rhiannon Clifton, Senior University Program Manager, Futurewei Technologies

This workshop was designed for a corporate audience and will share best practices for the corporate side of university – industry partnerships. All interested corporate parties are welcome, some suggested titles range from University Relations, University Technical Partnerships, Corporate social responsibility, Research Partnership Managers, Talent Acquisition and the list goes on.
