Career Services Center Endowed Partner $25,000+
The University of Central Missouri (UCM) Career Services Center Endowment is our most distinguished partnership. This lifetime partnership can be paid over five years. The Career Services Center Endowment is for corporate or personal sponsors who truly have a passion for the Career Services Center and our mission to educate and connect students with alumni, employers, or graduate schools. Endowment partners bolster the building of career-ready students and graduates and reinforce the empowerment of the Career Services Center. The interest generated from endowment funds will be used to increase programming, and student-to-employer interactions.

The Career Services Learning Lab contributes to the continued funding of a state-of-the-art learning environment for UCM students. This includes technology upgrades to allow for a more virtually capable space, laptop computers for students to use as needed and a space to collaborate with Career Services staff, Walk-In Studio Experience (W.I.S.E.) coaches, employers, and faculty. This sponsorship is valid for five-years and is available to one UCM partner only.
