Employee Acknowledgement Responsibilities

The cooperation of all within the University community is an essential element of efforts to protect concepts with commercial potential (inventions or creations) via patents and copyrights, which is a critical aspect of the technology transfer process.

Therefore, all PASSHE and University employees will receive and acknowledge receipt of the PASSHE Technology Transfer Guidelines upon initial hire as a routine part of their orientation. It shall be the responsibility of the appropriate Human Resources executive or administrator to ensure that the PASSHE University Technology Transfer Guidelines are presented to and the receipt acknowledged by any covered University employee.
