Washington State University Office of Commercialization

Communication during COVID-19 situation

Washington State University is actively monitoring the incidence of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our region.
In the immediate short term, OC staff will make every effort to continue to provide the same level of service. To make this possible, some of the staff may be working remotely as needed. Please contact the office well before any deadlines to allow for sufficient time to help you with your intellectual property and industry licensing needs. Electronic mail to the OC staff will be the preferred mode of communication during this time to improve response times. Should you not receive a reply within 24 hours of contacting individual staff members, please email our general mailbox at to ensure we receive your inquiry and address it in a timely manner.
