WSU wants its inventors and creators to monetarily benefit (personally and professionally) from the innovations that are disclosed and commercialized. To that end, WSU has the highest percentage of revenue sharing for faculty and staff of any of the Kansas Regents schools.
Note for Students: As a Wichita State student, if you make it, create it, write it or design it, it’s yours. Chapter 9.10 Intellectual Property, states that “The ownership of student works submitted in fulfillment of academic requirements shall be with the creator(s)…” There are a couple of instances when WSU may have full or joint ownership of the intellectual property. This could happen if the intellectual property is developed in collaboration with an employee of Wichita State, or the student is a WSU employee.
