Institutional Advancement

Invest in today’s students…benefit from tomorrow’s leaders

We work directly with companies looking for strategic engagement and investment opportunities. Your commitment expands access for future Ambrosians to obtain a SAU education, advances interdisciplinary excellence in the classroom, fuels athletic victories on the field and empowers students and faculty to positively impact local and global communities.

Sponsorships - As an anchor institution in the Quad Cities, our Corporate Engagement packages offer exposure to a strong regional audience with more than 30,000 alumni, 3,000 students, 400 faculty and staff members. Multi-level sponsorships that will advance the mission, goals and values of both parties are available with Fighting Bee Athletics, Special Events, Educational Programs and other opportunities to fit your needs.

Scholarships - Working with our Director of Corporate Engagement, SAU offers expansive scholarship opportunities that will align with your company's mission and values. Your investment will ensure SAU students are prepared to enter the workforce with a positive and lasting impact locally, regionally and globally.

Capital Initiatives - St. Ambrose University has endured in part due to strategic and nimble responses to the changing needs of students and our community. Corporate investment in capital projects offers a blank canvas for our organizational partners to create brand recognition and promote our strategic partnership. Supporting our capital initiatives ensure that our campus facilities provide a state-of-the-art education for your future employees.
