Welcome to the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation
The Office of the Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation supports MSU’s research and creative activity by administering research funding, ensuring research integrity for both faculty and students, providing grants support services, fostering collaboration, licensing university inventions, and overseeing regulatory compliance. Visitors can experience a sampling of outstanding faculty research by viewing lectures on YouTube, reading Research@MSU news, or by following research blogs on Spartan Ideas.
To support growth and accelerate the pace of discovery, Michigan State launched the Global Impact Initiative (GI2) in 2014 with the goal of recruiting 100 new faculty in some of the most exciting areas of research.
The MSU Innovation Center merges corporate research engagement, technology transfer, and startup company formation with experiential student entrepreneurship support.
Scholarship and creative activity are encouraged at every level of learning at MSU. Students have numerous opportunities to participate in projects, connect with faculty mentors or conduct their own research activities.
