GET TO YES:

We will strive to get to yes, but as a public educational institution of Kansas we must work within the following parameters:

  • Protect academic mission, including publication rights and basic research.
  • Comply with the Bayh-Dole Act when federal funding is used.
  • Include federally-determined overhead rates that allow us to provide access to exceptional faculty and facilities.
