Faculty, students, staff or others who participate in programs, who conceive, create, make, or first reduce to practice, in whole or in part, Intellectual Property. In the case of a work of copyright, the author is a Creator whose original ideas become fixed in a tangible medium. An Inventor or Creator is one who founds, creates or originates an Intellectual Property that constitutes an Invention, whether patentable or not. Merely performing work in a manner that does not contribute to the constitution, creation, origination nor the founding of the Invention, does not meet the definition of a Creator or Inventor.
