How It Works

      1) Join the community to submit ideas, add comments, and vote for your favorites. An idea is just the start - help develop, modify, or expand ideas by adding your insights.

      2) The New Revenue Initiatives team will review all submissions, and promising ideas will be referred to potential campus sponsors. Our team will help the potential sponsor by providing any services necessary, including further refinement, assessment, development, and/or funding.

What kinds of ideas?

We're looking for projects that will generate new revenue for campus. Share your crazy half-baked ideas, your well-formed proposals, and everything in between.
We want to turn your ideas into action!"

  • A new degree/certificate program that meets a market need
  • A campus service for students, parents, tourists, visitors, etc.
  • Offerings for new audiences: children, teens, mid-career adults, senior citizens, community members, foreign citizens and organizations
  • A hotel? Campus in Silicon Valley? A jazz festival on campus? A Makerspace? These are just a few examples: we're looking for your ideas!
