Walsh Construction Co. is Top 2018-2019 Sponsor through Corporate Partnership Program
Pacific University is pleased to have Walsh Construction Co. as a community partner through its Corporate Partnership Program. This program recognizes the core group of Pacific’s loyal and dedicated business, foundation and corporate sponsors who enhance the Pacific community through regular interactions between corporate representatives, faculty and students, and sustain a collaborative environment for teaching, course development, research and program management.
A longtime sponsor of Pacific’s signature Legends event, Walsh committed to a Gold Level sponsorship for the 2018-2019 fiscal year to support career opportunities for Pacific students.
Walsh Construction Co. was founded by brothers Tom and Bob Walsh in 1961, while they were still in college. What began as a two-man operation has grown to a company that produces an annual volume of over $400 million. They are a Northwest leader in high-quality, higher education construction; affordable multi-family housing; student and senior housing; historic renovations; health care; and hospitality projects, all of which encompass a broad range of construction types, including structural steel, wood frame and concrete. They are passionate about quality, craftsmanship, collaboration and building value. Their reputation for openness, honesty and competence is a benchmark they strive to protect and maintain.
Walsh Construction Co. prides itself on building smart, building green, and building community. By joining with Pacific as a corporate partner, Walsh Construction Co. promotes this last goal through supporting the mission of Pacific to be a diverse and sustainable community dedicated to discovery and excellence in teaching, scholarship and practice.
“Walsh Construction Co. is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Pacific University in support of their diverse community and supportive learning environment,” said Ryan Wilde, general manager of Walsh Construction Co., Oregon. “Pacific University has a strong vision for their future and they are solidly poised for groundbreaking accomplishment, growth, discovery and service — needing only the support of community partners to accelerate their movement forward. We see our sponsorship to support career opportunities for Pacific students to be in keeping with Walsh's tradition of engaging the communities we serve and providing opportunities for growth and advancement. We are committed to Pacific University, and to the Pacific Northwest, and to contributing to its economic and social equity and prosperity.”
Pacific University is committed to inspiring students to think, care, create and pursue justice. Gifts to the university support its $80 million fundraising campaign, Lead On: The Campaign for Tomorrow at Pacific University, which seeks to grow endowments, learning environments and innovations for a boundless future for students.
