Mikaila Arthur and Francis Leazes
Dr. Mikaila Arthur, Associate Professor in Sociology, and Dr. Francis Leazes, Professor in Political Science, have joined together on a research project sponsored by The Collaborative to explore the following policy question: What is Higher Education’s Role in Shaping the Workforce in Rhode Island?
Intellectual Property Policy
Essential to Rhode Island College's mission of education and research is the efficient and open dissemination of the results of research and creative works, first to scholars, and eventually to the general public. The intent of RIC's Intellectual Property Policy is as follows:
- Acknowledge the College's dedication to supporting the creation and distribution of knowledge;
- Encourage the development of intellectual property while also safeguarding potential monetary benefits;
- Establish the policy and procedure for determining the rights and ownership of intellectual property produced at or for the College by all College personnel.
