Research and Innovation

The Office of Research and Innovation was created in January 2015 to advance the university’s strategic initiatives around research and innovation, including its goal to double research funding over the next five years, and to provide an infrastructure that supports idea generation, entrepreneurship and commercialization across campus. The office oversees a variety of functional areas, including research compliance and sponsored programs, and several key initiatives, such as the university-wide The Explorer Challenge, the 707 Hub powered by Kohler Center for Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Initiative, and Marquette’s presence at the Global Water Center.
