Focus on Campus Innovation – Fifth Round of Innovation Minigrants

We were delighted to announce the innovation minigrant winners for the 2021-22 academic year at the Cal State Tech Conference this year. We were able to continue to support innovation projects on campuses due to the generous support of our sponsors. Over the past few rounds of proposals, we’re seeing both explorations in AR/VR/XR and enhancing classroom technology, which aligns to directions we anticipate seeing in digital learning moving forward. Congratulations to the winners!
