The USF Corporate & Foundation Engagement Office was created to support corporate and private foundation partners interested in connecting with the university for a wide range of collaborations, including talent development initiatives, faculty research, brand-building opportunities, and economic development support across our region. In close coordination with colleges and units across USF’s three campuses and downtown Tampa medical facilities, our team offers project management support for multi-pronged partnerships that seek to increase USF’s ability to positively impact our students and faculty, while also responding to the needs of our industry partners and the global community. We welcome the opportunity to connect with you!

DO BUSINESS WITH USF
USF employs a de-centralized Purchasing Model. Colleges and Departments determine needs and, using various vendor identification resources, obtain quotes for a variety of commodities and services.
Businesses may submit a Vendor Application to be added to a database of potential vendors. When a vendor completes the vendor application, the vendor is added to the Vendor Database and, if appropriate, the Minority, Women & Veteran Business Enterprise Vendor Database. These databases are two of the identification resources utilized at the USF. Vendors on the databases are also notified of public solicitations when there is a commodity or service match.
RECRUIT AT USF
The Office of Career Services offers recruitment services designed to serve industries, organizations and agencies from all employment sectors. Whether you need to fill a part-time job, an internship, or a full-time professional position, the Office’s portfolio of services and strategies can help you find the talent you need.
