R.G. Research and Development, Inc.

RG Research and Development, Inc., (RGRD) is a Texas non-profit corporation established by the LeTourneau Board of Trustees to support the mission and vision of LeTourneau University.

The goal of RGRD is to explore and develop innovative opportunities in the education space as well as related goods and services that can benefit LeTourneau University. RGRD seeks to promote original ideas, offerings, and products from LETU faculty, staff, and students. This investment in areas like intellectual property commercialization and business formation or acquisition benefits all parts of the LeTourneau community as well as the world of business more broadly.

RGRD also collaborates with the Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurial Leadership in the School of Business and the LeTourneau Ingenuity Center, which applies for and acquires patents on IP from the LETU community. Many LETU faculty members are inventors and have already been awarded patents through the work of the LeTourneau Ingenuity Center.
