Internal Funding

The Catalyst Initiative internal funding program aims to support the innovative work of faculty and staff in creating novel, sustainable initiatives that enhance the university’s mission, revenue, and student impact. The program is funded by the recurring innovation funds initially established in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Given the shared goal of the Office of the Provost (OP), the Office of Strategy and Innovation (OSI), and the Grants, Research, and Sponsored Programs Office (GRASP), to further innovative work, the units are collaborating to sponsor the Catalyst Initiative through two funding cycles: Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.
