Innovation grant deadline: August 1Posted on Jul 24, 2012 in Intercom
Innovation has been a hallmark of Northwestern Michigan College since before we were founded. Community leaders, seeking a new model for higher education, obtained legislation that helped make NMC the first community college in Michigan.
Innovation remains central to how we operate today, and was formally articulated in our Values by the Board of Trustees in 2007: “We will continuously improve the learning experience and its relevance to those we serve through innovation, agility and thoughtful risk-taking.”
To help encourage and support innovation, the NMC Board of Trustees asked the NMC Foundation to establish Innovation Grant Funds for faculty, staff and students.
The innovation grant program was established to fund innovative initiatives – ideas and opportunities that emerge during the year and occur outside of normal NMC budget sources and processes.
