Discovery is broad and deep at Western Michigan University. Our hundreds of faculty and staff have created a rich diversity of research and creative activities. OVPR facilitates, supports, and sustains both individual investigators and collaborative programs. We encourage internal and external inter-disciplinary and inter-organizational Discovery initiatives. OVPR assists with external funding proposal development and submission, manages the awarding and administration of internal funding support, and oversees compliance with research-related federal, state, and University regulations. This site provides tools and resources to help you do Discovery at WMU.
