Western Michigan University Research Foundation


The WMURF is a separate, nonprofit corporation with its own board of directors, operated as a supporting organization for the benefit of Western Michigan University. WMU, a Michigan institution of higher education governed by the Board of Trustees of WMU, seeks to enhance and expand its sponsored research, economic development, and outreach programs by enabling the University to compete favorably by using the services of the WMURF.

The vast majority of major research universities have formed research foundations or research corporations to facilitate the development of intellectual property and to advance the research mission of the University.
