Funding for Collaborative Programs

Update on LVAIC Funded Programs

Academic Year 2020-2021

We would like to provide an update to all groups who submitted a funded program proposal for Academic Year 2020-2021.  First of all, thank you for your continued interest in engaging in collaborative programs.

These program funds come from money distributed from each of your campuses and are designated to support collaborative programming and new initiatives.  As you are aware, all of your campuses are currently evaluating their budgets to determine the best way to allocate resources for maximum benefit to all initiatives.  With this in mind, a designated budget for LVAIC funded programs has not been determined and so we currently are unable to commit any financial resources to this process.  The soonest we might have an update on funding would be September.

We appreciate the collaboration and innovation you have demonstrated through your proposals both this year and in the past.  As we move forward into the new academic year we will continue to evaluate the possibility for collaborative funding.  In the meantime, we encourage further collaborative ideas that may align to LVAIC strategic priorities. Should additional ideas arise, please share them with the LVAIC office by contacting Charlene Bergstresser, bergstresserc@lvaic.org, directly.

The LVAIC Collaborative Funding program provides resources to groups within the LVAIC community who, through collaboration, wish to engage in activities that advance LVAIC’s priorities.  The proposed activities should explore new and innovative ideas, broaden audience inclusion, and/or maximize the sharing of resources and experiences across LVAIC community.

Proposal Review:
As in previous years, the proposals will be reviewed by various leadership members from across the six LVAIC campuses. Content in the proposal submission will be reviewed against proposal evaluation criteria. Proposal leads will be contacted in the event further clarification is required.
