You can participate in the University-wide Collaborative Initiative Retreat on Nov. 9, 2018, to learn more. Faculty interested in the Big Ideas Initiative and associated RFP are not required to attend the Collaboration Initiative Retreat; however, attendance is encouraged.
The Collaboration Initiative Retreat is an annual event where faculty discuss programmatic grant possibilities with their colleagues. At the Collaboration Initiative Retreat kickoff, NU and Foundation leaders will present more information about the Big Idea initiative and answer questions.
Faculty also will have an opportunity to discuss potential Big Ideas with their colleagues in conjunction with the Collaboration Initiative themes and work on Big Ideas unrelated to research themes.
