Question of the Week

What is the Innovation/Research and Development request process?

Bryan Woodhouse met with the Matters team to talk about the Innovation/Research and Development request process. The process allows faculty and staff to submit promising new ideas, methods, product developments or opportunities that support the college's mission, vision, and values. The primary source of funds is the Contingency Fund, which is managed by the College Cabinet and the President. 

This process is designed to support:

  • One to two-year pilot projects that investigate and implement ideas initiated by creative faculty and staff
  • One-time planning projects by a faculty/staff member (or team) to investigate whether an idea is feasible

Vist the SharePoint site to submit a request.
