Here are some of the highlights of what we’ve accomplished so far with this new dynamic:
Started the Innovation Fellows program. The founding fellows of 2013-2014 are John Spink, College of Veterinary Medicine; Jeff Grabill and Julie Lindquist, College of Arts & Letters; Cris Sullivan, College of Social Science; David Kramer and Greg Austic, College of Natural Science. Read more.
Established a Faculty Entrepreneur in Residence. Dale Elshoff from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is currently helping MSUglobal launch SpartanCorps, aimed at engaging MSU students, faculty, staff, alumni and others within the MSU community in solving grand global challenges. These programs have pilot phases launching in 2014.
Piloting MOOCswith the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Arts and Letters.
In 2014-15, we are planning to:
Incubate four new focus areas with MSUglobal Innovation Fellows.
Increase by 20 percent the number of faculty working with us to incorporate revenue-generating and reputation-strengthening delivery formats.
Increase by 30 percent the number of research projects working with us to incorporate knowledge platforms.
On behalf of the MSUglobal staff, I’d like to extend our gratitude to everyone we’ve collaborated with in 2013. The opportunities to participate in exciting projects, research and initiatives that our partners have undertaken over the course of the past year has been truly rewarding for us, and we hope for our partners as well. For faculty and members of the campus community who have not yet worked with MSUglobal, we invite you to come to one of our events throughout the year or stop by our office to learn about how we can help you strengthen your three R’s – reputation, revenue and research.
