Share Your Work

Western Michigan University celebrates faculty and student success in research and innovation.  From new fellowships, grants, and partnerships to new journal publications, book releases, society memberships and technologies -- we want to know.  There are several avenues to highlight your accomplishments at WMU.  


Additionally bargaining unit faculty have funds available to them through the Research Policies Council of the Faculty Senate to cover certain kinds of expenses for dissemination, such as printing posters, paying permission fees for images, subventing publication costs, traveling to present at conferences, and more. After you have completed your research and creative activity and expended funds to support dissemination, you may submit appropriate documentation for the reimbursement of eligible costs.
