Business and Community Partners

We build partnerships. We want to build one with you.

Our commitment is to mobilize USM students, faculty and staff to address community-identified needs in partnerships marked by respect, reciprocity, and mutual benefit. Whether we have been collaborating for years, or you want to start a new relationship, we want to talk with you. 

We can assist you with:

  • Connecting with our faculty on service-learning experiences
  • Recruiting student interns
  • Finding student volunteers
  • Setting up ongoing community-campus initiatives
  • Posting job opportunities for students & alumni
