Corporate matching programs encourage employees to give back to their communities and help build visibility and good will both internally and externally.
Volunteering builds beneficial partnerships between corporations and Texas A&M. Examples of volunteer opportunities include:
These groups of employees volunteer to coordinate their company’s recruiting, research and giving interests at Texas A&M. Each team is led by a “university executive” who acts at top management levels to represent the objectives of his company’s college relations efforts.
By serving on advisory groups that guide Texas A&M’s academic programs, industry helps shape graduate and undergraduate curricula and ensure their relevance in the marketplace.
Through exchanges with faculty who are expert in their fields, corporations interchange technology and knowledge from academe to industry.
