 SUBJECT: Visit Schedule for TreMonti’s Intellectual Asset Management Practice

As part of our efforts to encourage innovation and discovery at American University and to assist in the commercialization of any intellectual property resulting from research and academic efforts, AU has engaged the services of TreMonti Consulting’s Intellectual Asset Management practice. We have been working with TreMonti to set up a technology transfer process for the university that will meet the needs of our faculty.

This semester, on a trial basis, we would like the TreMonti team to have the opportunity to meet with interested AU investigators to help them document any discoveries, inventions or bodies of work that come from their research efforts at AU. A member of the TreMonti team will be available to meet with individuals or groups of AU faculty on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, October 18th, 10:00-4:00pm in the Provost Conference Room
  • Tuesday, November 15th, 10:00-4:00pm in the Provost Conference Room

Please contact Anita Brown, or x6333 to schedule an appointment. You can also download the below form in order to prepare for our workshop.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at x3753.

Thank you for your interest in intellectual property commercialization.

In addition, I ask that all faculty post syllabi and course assignments on the Web for students to access. All credit courses offered at the main campus and Tenley have Blackboard sites wherein student rosters have been automatically uploaded. Later today, the AU Blackboard Support Center will send an email instructing faculty on the use of Blackboard and other instructional technology options as means to support course communication and instruction. Should damage prove extensive, faculty with access to telecommunications should use these media to continue educational offerings until normal operations resume.

Thank you in advance for your support. More information will be forthcoming as it is made available.
