The Office of Research and Technology Transfer serves as an axis of research collaboration for Wichita State University. Research, public service and sponsored programs help fulfill Wichita State University’s diverse mission. Sponsored programs are scholarly, professional and creative activities that university personnel conduct with support from external funding such as grants, contracts and cooperative agreements.
The RTT assists in facilitating research through the identification of funding opportunities, submission of proposals and securing financial support. Each year, WSU personnel are successful at obtaining funding through many competitive sponsored awards and a great number of these involve collaboration with other universities or investigators, nationally and internationally.
