CUPA-HR Corporate Partner

CUPA-HR Mary Ann Wersch Premier Partner

Corporate partnerships have long played an important role in CUPA-HR’s work. Among CUPA-HR’s corporate partners, there are a select few who demonstrate outstanding leadership, innovation and dedication in support of the association and the higher education HR profession. To recognize these special organizations, CUPA-HR has established the Mary Ann Wersch Premier Partner designation, named in honor of 1998-99 board chair Mary Ann Wersch.

For over 100 years, TIAA has been a different kind of financial services company, helping enable the financial well-being of millions of people working in the academic, research, cultural, medical, government and nonprofit fields. By serving their financial needs through institutions like yours, we are dedicated to making a difference in their lives so they can focus where they make a difference – teaching, inventing, inspiring, curing, nurturing, and serving to create a better world for us all.

Andrew Carnegie founded TIAA in 1918 to ensure teachers retire with dignity. Today, we continue that legacy by growing, innovating and diversifying so we can help more people pursue financial well-being throughout every stage of their lives.  And we are helping our institutional clients meet their financial goals to support their unique missions and growth objectives. While what we offer our customers and clients is expanding and who we serve will continue to grow, how we serve our institutions and their employees – and the values and commitment at the heart of our mission – will never change.
