Industry Connections Report | 2019



For corporations, businesses and other university stakeholders, connecting with UW-Stout doesn’t require coming to UW-Stout. The university also can come to them. Organizations can sponsor an event and host it by working with the Alumni Association and other campus officials. Examples include: Kraus-Anderson Construction hosted a summer alumni gathering on the rooftop of its downtown Minneapolis headquarters. The event gave the company, which employs many UW-Stout graduates, a chance to open its doors to alumni from around the region. Thomson Reuters of Eagan, MN, hosted a reception for the many alumni they employ. The event featured Chancellor Meyer and other UW-Stout leaders providing updates on the university and programs. The company collaborated with the university to develop the digital marketing technology major, including providing classroom instructors. Medtronic, in Minneapolis, hosted university representatives from Career Services, the Discovery Center, the Stout University Foundation and the College of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Management to discuss how the company can further engage with the university. The group shared many ideas and continues to explore mutually beneficial partnerships. Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells, where several UW-Stout alumni are top administrators, annually holds a weekend alumni getaway for families that features discounted rooms, food and special events.
