Focus on Campus Innovation: Minigrants

In May, we announced the availability of $10,000 grants to support campus innovation, and early in June we released the list of nine proposals that have been funded for Fall 2017. We received more than 30 proposals from IT and Academic Technology Staff, as well as from faculty. Innovation areas included improving the student experience, exploring virtual reality, and improving the efficiency of technology deployment and support.

Congratulations to all the minigrant recipients! We will be looking forward with anticipation to see what they can accomplish over the next six months.
