President’s and Provost’s Fund for Program Innovation and Excellence


​Welcome to the starting line to help drive CMU's strategic transformation: the President's and Provost's Fund for Program Innovation and Excellence.

As CMU faculty and staff, you can submit plans for rigorous, relevant and excellent experiences that will equip our students for fulfilling careers and lives.

We will identify and reward proposals that boldly position CMU for 2030 and beyond.

While the fund's main focus is curricular innovation, we welcome creative proposals in other areas, and we encourage interdisciplinary efforts.

Below you can access a cover sheet, a budget template and a request for proposals document that includes all of the essential details and dates. If you have questions, email orgs@cmich.edu. Let's fire up for great ideas that will shape our future together.

Robert O. Davies, President
Mary C. Schutten, Provost
