New Director at WSU Will Link Innovative Ideas On and Off Campus
“We want students to have more practical experience and applied opportunities,” Taylor said. “Educated students can be a beacon of innovation, and their ideas can offer insights to business challenges.”
“Alumni can engage with us on an entrepreneurial level,” Taylor explained. “We invite them to bring ideas to campus that students can run with and help develop. It’s another way for alumni to both give and receive from the university.”
“Students who work with faculty on exciting and challenging research questions get an incredible education,” Taylor said. “We want to allow every student to participate who is interested, particularly when we can take their ideas and get them to the marketplace. We also want to make it possible for faculty to successfully blend research into their curriculum.”
Taylor holds a law degree from the University of Utah where he went on to work on a number of research/business partnerships as the executive director of the Energy Commercialization Center and the associate director of the Partnership Development Technology Commercialization Office.
