ROCHESTER, N.Y.--Sept. 4, 2003-- Xerox Corporation has established a two-year corporate partnership with the University of Notre Dame that makes Xerox the premier print provider for Notre Dame Athletics and builds a brand link between Xerox and the university.

"Xerox is a partner with a strong brand, outstanding technology and a vision for advancing our university," said Bill Scholl, Notre Dame's associate athletic director for marketing and corporate relations. "This commitment will benefit student-athletes, coaching staff and our organization as Xerox provides the school with its high-quality document-processing equipment."

The partnership includes integrated marketing and promotional activities including television and print advertising, special events, retail and consumer marketing, and other corporate hospitality initiatives.
