Saluki Family Association sponsorship

The Saluki Family Association sponsorship program facilitates connections between students and their family members and supporters and members of the Carbondale community. Sponsorship packages are available at a variety of levels to meet the needs of varying businesses and organizations. Saluki Family Association sponsors receive unique access to our students through publications, programs and events, the MySIU app, and social media. Saluki Family Association sponsors also receive complimentary invites to resource fairs at New Student Orientation and the community welcome events during Saluki Startup and Weeks of Welcome.

Each year SIU depends upon returning students, faculty and staff, and the Carbondale community to help welcome new students to campus. Volunteers play a critical role in events and help establish a sense of the SIU community from a new student’s first day on campus. Volunteer roles vary greatly, so anyone can be involved – simply choose a shift that works for you.
