KENNESAW - Kennesaw State University leaders touted a newly formed corporate partnerships program Tuesday morning, which would charge businesses $5,000 a year to gain better access to the university's professors and students.

"We need each other. This program will build and nurture relationships between the business community and the university, and will broaden our scope, and enhance and enrich our community," Pam Hubby, director of corporate development for KSU, said to about 60 local business leaders during a breakfast held at Embassy Suites off of Chastain Road in Kennesaw.
