Constant Hall Partners Program

About Constant Hall Partners

The Constant Hall Partners Program (CHPP) is a relationship between the community and Old Dominion University's College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA). A key objective of the program is to create closer ties to the business community, the future employers of our graduates.

Partner organizations are asked to make a recurring annual gift to the College. Partners are recognized with a plaque engraved with their company name and corporate logo. Plaques are displayed on our "Partners' Wall" in the lobby of the first floor of Constant Hall. This demonstrates to everyone passing through the building that the College is engaged with alumni, business, and not-for-profit organizations. Partners are invited to special College functions throughout the year, including the State of the College Address. They also receive electronic copies of the College's bi-monthly newsletter and various special publicatios.

The CHPP helps the College acquire recurring financial resources for many purposes, including support for: faculty initiatives to enhance the students' classroom experience; our students to participate in academic competitions, to study abroad, and to attend conferences; faculty development and research; production of marketing materials and external communications; and special events for students and other constituents.
