This office will largely focus on ideas that fall in the academic programming or University operations domains. While it welcomes ideas that are driven by fundraising, grant / research funding, IP, company spin-offs, etc., the majority of these ideas will be funneled through the existing resources found in University Advancement, Office of Research Development / Administration, Technology Transfer and Industry Collaboration, etc. See our current projects here!
