Intellectual Property and Commercialization Committee

Membership 2018-2019


The committee is to serve the intellectual property (IP) interests of APSU, its personnel (either full-time, part-time, or temporary employees), its enrolled students, and any other persons using APSU facilities and resources.  To fulfill this purpose, the committee will evaluate and/or research information and statements submitted to the committee by employees to determine if the IP was either derived from work supported by or through the institution or involved a significant use of the institution's resources.  The committee submits to the President its recommendation relative to:  1) the ownership of the intellectual property, 2) the need to seek protection (including patent and copyright), 3) the distribution and assignment of royalties, 4) the acceptance of related third-party agreements, 5) commercialization of the intellectual property, and 6) any deviation of APSU Policy 2:047 as appropriate to the situation or circumstances surrounding the intellectual property.
