The Office of Research and Innovation accelerates the discovery enterprise at Western Michigan University. We support faculty, staff and students in their research pursuits.

They assist with external funding proposal development and submission, manage the awarding and administration of internal funding support, and oversee and assure compliance with research-related federal, state, and University regulations.

Until 2019, they were known as the Office of the Vice President for Research.
