H.H. Franklin Center for Supply Chain Management



One of the earliest endowed transportation programs in the nation, its mission is to enhance the University’s position as a nationally recognized leader in supply chain management education and research. In pursuit of this mission, we seek to foster a close community of students, faculty, staff, and practitioners focused on advancing the state of knowledge, engaging the mind, and stimulating the best effort of all. In 2019, the H.H. Franklin Center for Supply Chain Management celebrates its 100th year.

The Franklin Center and its Advisory Board oversee the annual Harry E. Salzberg Memorial Program.

Our guiding principles:

For students: Provide a challenging and enjoyable environment in which to learn, do, and grow. Mentor, place, and maintain relationships with them.

For alumni: Provide ongoing career advice and opportunities for networking.

For practitioners: Provide services and products to meet your needs, such as internships/co-ops, talented employees, opportunities to share your experiences with our students, and executive education.
