The annual Chancellor’s Innovation Fund (CIF) provides colleges with an opportunity to receive funding in support of innovative projects that closely align with the VCCS strategic plan, Complete 2021. This award year, special emphasis was placed on proposals that explore innovative solutions in support of student success through Guided Pathways and initiatives outlined in each college’s Final Action Plan.
This year we received 19 CIF proposals from 16 colleges. The CIF Review Committee, made up of faculty and administrators from the VCCS Student Success Center Steering Committee, faced the challenge of selecting the best projects from among very worthy and innovative proposals.
Congratulations to the 2016-2017 CIF grantees, listed below, for their outstanding projects.
