Partnering with BYU

Partnering with BYU

Organizations wishing to form a partnership to collaborate with a faculty-led BYU student team will follow this process:

Identify a Faculty Member

Review the Partnering Hub to find a suitable faculty-led project/capstone/experiential learning project that may benefit your organization. Projects are organized within the Hub by college, and include descriptions of faculty-led partnering opportunities, project requirements, and expected outcomes and deliverables. Once you have identified a potential project, reach out directly to the faculty member or department indicated on the contact card next to the project title.

Evaluate Project Requirements

For projects that involve: student research from a government sponsor, or research involving human or animal subjects, lasers, or bio-hazardous material, faculty will coordinate with the Research Administration Office (RAO) for approval. Upon approval, RAO will coordinate with Grants and Contracts Accounting (GCA) for funding facilitation, invoicing, accounts receivables, account management, and reporting.

For all other partnering opportunities, the partner will be asked to sign the BYU Capstone Agreement. If requested by the partner, participating students will sign Non-Disclosure Agreements. All signed agreements will be submitted to the Experiential Learning & Internships Office.

Funding Options

When the partner is donating funding to support a project, without an expected deliverable or contract, the funding is facilitated through LDS Philanthropies (LDSP). The project partner will indicate the academic unit, faculty member, and the partnering team that will receive the funding.

Funding that is not donated will be invoiced by BYU. Payment schedule and project expenses will be agreed upon by both faculty member and partner before project begins. Partner will receive deliverables/expectations at the conclusion of the project.

Begin!

Once a project has been identified, the supervising faculty member and partner have agreed to the terms of the partnership, necessary coordination with campus entities has been completed, and agreements are in place, the partnering project may begin.
