Corporate and Foundation Relations

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work fosters collaborations with philanthropic institutions, foundations and businesses to develop mutually beneficial partnerships that support:

  • Programs, projects and centers
  • Translational research with measurable impact
  • Workforce development – namely scholarships and internships, as well as field fellowships and clinical placements
  • Community outreach
  • Mentorship and volunteer opportunities
  • Event sponsorships

We also work closely with faculty seeking to pursue private institutional funding for curricular and research projects.

As a leader in social work and nursing education and research, the School integrates the sciences of social work and nursing with real-world practice to prepare students to effectively treat and support individuals and communities by addressing the social, mental, behavioral and biomedical factors that impact them. Together with our graduates, our research and centers improve the well-being of vulnerable individuals and communities, as well as advance social and economic justice on a local, national and global scale.

We invite you to learn more about our work and the School, as we strengthen the social work and nursing professions to address some of the most challenging issues facing our society. We look forward to working with you.
