Students who would like to submit a project proposal or learn more about the proposal process are welcome to attend one of the three Student LEAF Proposal Workshop & Open Forum events listed below.

In response to the convergence of the "most significant and complex" external challenges ever faced by the University of Northern Colorado, the university has launched a two-year, campuswide initiative for innovative ideas to offer new programs, reach new learners, deliver programs in new formats, develop new teaching techniques, and find new ways to support success.
"President Norton has long been a champion of focusing on transformation instead of restoration, and Innovation@UNC is our way of acting on that idea," said Provost Robbyn Wacker.
The initiative is intended to tap into the creativity and expertise of the campus community to identify unique ways to address these specific issues:
"Innovation@UNC is about responding to the most significant and complex external challenges we have ever faced as a university," Wacker said.

Innovation@UNC will invest $1 million in the most innovative proposals submitted by faculty and staff in the following areas:
