Academic research and international engagement play a vital role in our nation’s economy. The research capacity of universities is important to long-term national interests and competitiveness of the United States. By one estimate, approximately 80% of leading industries have resulted from research conducted at colleges and universities.
Though challenging to identify and secure, numerous resources are available to support the international work of WSU faculty, researchers, staff, and students.
