The Center created a structure of Corporate Associates through which a number of U.S. and international financial institutions, institutional investors, securities exchanges, and corporations support its activities. Each Associate commits a limited amount of funds over a renewable five-year period, which underwrites faculty research and conferences conducted under the auspices of the Center. In return, the Associate firm receives:
  • Advance access to research findings
  • Invitation and attendance without charge to all Center conferences and workshops
  • Copies of all Center publications and working papers.
The Associates program also facilitates sponsorship by individual organizations of specific applied research projects and conferences. Some Associates also find membership a useful way to identify academic experts for engagement in proprietary projects of mutual interest.
Participation as an Associate of the Center is by invitation. Further information can be obtained from the Director.
