Community Partners

At USFSM, we partner with a multitude of non-profit, educational, governmental, veteran and other organizations to stimulate positive impact throughout the communities we serve.  We believe that inviting our community partners to join us in the educational process benefits our students, faculty and staff.  In return, our same campus community serves the local region in areas such as education, arts and culture, hospitality, business, workforce and economic development and other critical impact areas.

In the Sarasota-Manatee area, we are incredibly fortunate to have a large and vibrant non-profit community, collaborative governmental entities and an active business community.   We appreciate our community partners and the value they bring to the communities in which we serve.  Our ability to collaboratively leverage relationships and resources significantly contributes to the public good.

If you are interested in partnering with the university, please contact Casey Welch at or (941) 359-4572.
