Illinois State University is pleased to recognize Enterprise Holdings for its generous support of the University’s Career Center. The industry leader and Career Center partner recently granted $5,000 to the Career Center to support its Cultural Career Network.

The Cultural Career Network (CCN) serves to prepare students for the workplace in areas of networking and career awareness. The goal of CCN is to offer unique networking opportunities to students of diverse backgrounds to connect them with employers, and provide resources about available internship and career opportunities. Local and statewide employers, such as Enterprise, play a significant role in student career success as they participate and sponsor Cultural Career Network activities and events.

“As one of America’s best public universities in the nation for quality and excellence, Illinois State is proud to partner with Enterprise,” said Career Center Director Pamela Cooper. “Enterprise is a leader in their industry and seeks to connect and support outstanding talent. So it is of no surprise that our long-standing relationship with Enterprise is truly one of mutual support and commitment, and one that makes us in the Career Center Redbird proud.”

Started in 1982, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation was established to allow the company to give back to the communities where its customers and employees live and work. “At Enterprise we believe in strengthening our communities one neighborhood at a time. We find great value in partnering with universities like Illinois State where we can work with the future leaders of those communities,” said Group Talent Manager Drew Butts.

Enterprise is a Career Center Partner, an active member of the legacy of industry leaders supporting Illinois State, including Caterpillar Inc., C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc., Cintas, College Pro, Country Financial Services, and Liberty Mutual. Companies interested in Illinois State can learn more about the Career Center by contacting Cooper.
