Corporate Support for CSCR

Corporate support for the Center for Supply Chain Research®️(CSCR®️) including what gift funds support and contact information for additional questions.

As organizations recognize the power of higher education and industry collaboration, they are joining forces to address an evolving list of external and internal forces impacting an organization's supply chain — global events, workforce demographics, disruptive technology, social responsibility, interdisciplinary approaches to innovation, talent and leadership pipeline gap, and doing more with fewer resources.

For over three decades, the Center for Supply Chain Research®️(CSCR®️) has successfully built a community of researchers and leading organizations in both the private and public sectors to advance the supply chain discipline with impactful research, innovation, and world-class knowledge. We welcome all supply chain organizations to consider supporting CSCR as we continue to curate and sustain world-class research, executive education, symposia, and talent development.
