Corporate Partner Program

Clemson University’s Department of Construction Science and Management (CSM) is one of the nation’s top ten construction education programs. Its accredited undergraduate and graduate programs attract quality students from throughout the world. The program graduates hold leadership positions in the major sectors of the construction industry in the United States and overseas. In addition, the students within the department are fully engaged in their educational activities both within and outside the formal classroom environment. To help insure the continuing quality of education the students receive, to provide professional development opportunities for faculty and to enhance the CSM Department’s continuous collaboration with the construction industry, the Corporate Partner Program was developed.

The mission of the Corporate Partner Program is two-fold. First, to support professionally-related activities of the students and faculty in the CSM Department and those of its Center for the Improvement of Construction Management and Processes (CICMP). In terms of professional student and faculty activities, these include field trips to project sites, participation in local, regional and national construction association competitions, and faculty professional development. In addition, support from the Corporate Partners provides seed money for applied research and professional development projects for the benefit of the Corporate Partners conducted through the CICMP.

The second part of the mission is to conduct applied research and professional development activities pertaining to proven “Best Practices” that will result in more effective and efficient construction. The CICMP houses all of the research and professional development conducted by the CSM Department along with working with the construction industry on various initiatives. Recent applied research has resulted in the publication of a series of Construction Best Practice Guides. For details about the Guides, go to the CICMP’s website at http://cicmp.org.

To become a part of the Corporate Partner Program, companies are asked to make a three-year tax deductible pledge of $5,000 annually.  For the investment, participating companies will realize the following benefits:

  • Unique opportunities to engage with the CSM Department students, including showcasing companies' permanent and internship employment opportunities at the two annual Corporate Partner-Student Career Fairs.
  • A seat on the Industry Advisory Board to help guide the work of the CSM Department and Center.
  • Special recognition in prominent locations throughout Clemson University, especially in the CSM Department and Center’s facilities and on the CSM website.
  • Recognition of the company in all appropriate CSM department, Center, college, university, and industry publications.
  • Complimentary access, through the Center’s web site (http://cicmp.org) to a network of national and international construction associations, companies, and individuals to utilize in fulfilling company objectives and creating partnerships.
  • Access to the Center’s resources to develop and conduct continuing education programs and/or applied research at reduced costs.
  • Complimentary copies of all Center research, service, educational, and other publications.
  • Two free rounds of golf at the CSM Department annual contractor, faculty, and student golf tournament along with the company’s name listed as a hole sponsor and the opportunity to distribute company information.

Interested parties are encouraged to contact Dr. Mike Jackson, Chair and Professor, Department of Construction Science and Management at 864-656-3878 or nmjacks@clemson.edu.
