The Ideas for Impact initiative launched in Fall 2017 has gotten off to a productive start. 32 unique ideas were submitted from nearly every division and school at the College. Each idea was reviewed carefully and many were approved for funding through the Annual Trustees Opportunities Fund, the Ideas for Impact Fund, or they are being vetted for funding through another source. It’s also important to note that many of the ideas have built on existing revenue generation ideas that have been suggested previously.
While good ideas can be shared at any time (the form will continue to remain active), please consider submitting a proposal in advance of our next deadline – February 9, 2018. Replies will be provided to all of the applicants by March 1.
As you recall, this initiative is intended identify new ideas that have the potential to generate new or increased revenue for the College. The form is designed to help idea champions introduce their idea to members of campus leadership. The proposal should be relatively brief but include enough information for a review committee to assess viability. The proposals will be reviewed for short-term and/or long-term planning and execution grants.
