Corporate partnership

The regional business community plays a critical role in helping UMS to provide accessible and inclusive programs, engaged learning opportunities in the arts, and bold leadership for the future of the arts.

Partnering with UMS, whether through sponsorship, advertising, in-kind contributions, or hospitality packages, aligns your brand with world-class artistry, diversity, tradition, and innovation, all while demonstrating your commitment to the extraordinary quality of life we enjoy in southeastern Michigan.

To discuss what we can achieve together, please contact Susan Bozell Craig at 734-647-1176 or e-mail sbozell@umich.edu.
