Office of Research

Our research mission is oriented to our students, and to our region. Students work alongside talented faculty in cutting-edge research, learning where new knowledge and creativity comes from, and most importantly, how to assess its validity. Our students are often solving problems for our community, underscoring our commitment to being a driver of the economy and quality of life of our community, and become equipped with skills and relationships for success in their careers.

We challenge our students to be active agents in their education. The FUSE program challenges students to write their own grant proposals and Innoplexx challenges students to start their own business. Our students have stepped up impressively. FUSE can boast a wide array of award-winning research and creative activity. Innoplexx students now work full-time for their own company.

At the WKU Office of Research we are committed to facilitating the research and creative activities of our faculty, staff and students. Contact us at any time wkuresearch@wku.edu.
