The Corporate Affiliate Program
The AICUP Corporate Affiliate Program is comprised of high quality companies whose support for private higher education is evidenced by their financial support to AICUP, their interest in finding solutions for AICUP members and their firm’s presence within the Keystone State.
Collaboration Opportunities for Corporate Affiliates
Sponsorship Opportunities for Corporate Affiliates
Each Corporate Affiliate participates in this program by invitation only and all provide services to at least one AICUP member before being eligible to join the program. Corporate Affiliates may also provide endorsed services (as seen on prior pages), however the vast majority of Corporate Affiliates do not provide endorsed services to AICUP and its members. AICUP’s due diligence of these companies is limited to a review of an application form and a lengthy personal interview. That being said, AICUP does not actively recruit Corporate Affiliates and all of these companies have in one way or another sought this status with AICUP.
The purpose of the AICUP Member Preferred program (AMP) is to provide Corporate Affiliates with an opportunity to offer pricing discounts and/or service enhancements to AICUP members without considering volume, leverage or aggregation that is necessary for an AICUP Endorsed Program. Corporate Affiliates, through AMP, are able to submit preferred pricing/preferred service programs to the AICUP Member Services Committee for consideration.
Video Intro Program - AICUP’s 89 member colleges span all corners of Pennsylvania so it is often difficult for our members to actually meet the persons who represent any specific corporate affiliate. Twenty AICUP Corporate Affiliates recently created a short message detailing how their services specifically serve independent and private colleges and universities in Pennsylvania.
Intern - AICUP wants to identify and recognize affiliates providing paid internships to students attending AICUP members schools. Over time, an expansion of internship offerings may occur as AICUP hopes all Corporate Affiliates will provide at least one substantial paid internship experience for students attending an AICUP member institution.
Professional Development - AICUP corporate affiliates are now encouraged to provide information on any/all training experiences they currently offer that would be of interest to AICUP member campuses. Many AICUP Corporate Affiliates already provide valuable professional training and educational opportunities either through formal training programs or through ad hoc customer/client-acquisition programs. Eventually, AICUP will solicit specific training experiences from interested Corporate Affiliates (and others) for member-requested professional development experiences. These professional development opportunities will incorporate a focus specific to independent institutions of higher educational in Pennsylvania and be offered either in the classroom and/or using remote online services.
