Corporations and Foundations
A Message from President Elson S. Floyd
A new world economy based on knowledge and human capital presents tremendous opportunities for public and private partners whose core strategies align with Washington State University's vision and expertise.
Cutting-edge research conducted by WSU faculty—and often brought to market in conjunction with our industry colleagues—creates technologies and products that provide significant economic returns and immense benefits to our quality of life.
Our success stories are abundant. For example, research conducted in tandem with agriculture interests has led to the state's position as one of the world's top wheat producers and the emergence of Washington's viticulture and enology industry. The wood-plastic composite formulations developed by our Composite Materials & Engineering Center for industry generates $1 billion-plus in annual revenues.
We are committed to building our portfolio of dynamic public-private partnerships. I invite you to join us as we seek to serve as a catalyst for the economic and social development of communities throughout Washington and the world.
Elson S. Floyd, Ph.D.
