Webinar Presenter:

Paul Jacob Lipp
Director, Corporate Relations Advancement
University of Houston Downtown


At UHD, Mr. Lipp is responsible for the university's efforts to build relationships between the university and the corporate community. This involves facilitating engagement reflective of the companies' desire to partner with the university, through curriculum development and recruiting to ultimately support efforts to seek corporate giving. A significant portion of Mr. Lipp's efforts relate to managing volunteers from the corporate and wider employer community. He assists leadership to ensure that the curriculum is current and relevant and making adjustments where appropriate. He is also responsible for building and maintaining university-wide relationships with companies, to support the various objectives of the university. He also identifies opportunities for companies to make philanthropic gifts in support of the university. 

AD&D looks forward to learning from Mr. Lipp's dynamic presentation. Be sure to join us.
