Innovation Funds

The Laramie County Community College Innovation Fund Program is designed to encourage innovative approaches to helping the college better meet its mission. The program accomplishes this by funding (1) pilot projects that will investigate and implement ideas initiated by creative faculty, staff and students; and (2) one-time planning projects by a faculty/staff member or student to investigate whether an idea is relevant and feasible. The program fosters an entrepreneurial culture by promoting an environment that is conducive to experimentation and imagination. Innovation fund proposals are managed by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. College Council reviews and scores the proposals and recommends to the president whether or not the proposals should be funded. Proposals awarded innovation funds and their reports are on EaglesEye under My Communities.
