In 2014 we launched our first Bold Ideas Challenge calling on the campus community to submit ideas to: improve services to students, teaching or learning or fix an efficient process. The initiative was so successful we called for additional Bold Ideas again in 2016 and 2018. To date, 375 Bold Ideas have been submitted. Most were passed to specific departments for review and consideration. Thirty ideas were given to CAIFE teams for further review and exploration. Many have become reality.
