A more entrepreneurial university

  • Emphasize impact of research on state and region 
  • Encourage pursuit of outside funding for research – especially to support student involvement 
  • Assistance in grant writing, navigating through processes at NSF, NIH, etc. – collegiate or university level, hire more grant writers 
  • Research expo at undergraduate/graduate level 
  • Give credit for entrepreneurship 
  • Base decisions on level of acceptable risk 
  • Encourage engineering outreach type initiatives 
  • Lead in fields where we can contribute to expo on research @ UI 
  • Continue/enhance patent and licensing of research products 
  • We have to be in the business of identifying marketing, management and revenue of our IP or collaborative IP = money from industry 
  • Streamline proposal and grants accounting processes & provide more flexibility in expenditures 
  • Willingness to change our offered majors – don’t just cut majors – make them current/real (change them to the market for our students and our world). 
  • Internal research expo but invite NS science/math teachers for PR 
  • Dedicated student learning space (library remodel) 
  • Scholarship on urban ecosystems /transportation/development patterns, surface water management 
  • Create cross-discipline seminars for both students, faculty, & community 
  • Redirect F&A return to college and faculty of origin (increase incentives) 
  • Increase seed grant funds for novel (& therefore riskier) ideas 
  • Support/encourage small business spin-offs (make it easier) 
  • Focus on societal problems w/tech transfer &trademark attributes 
  • Look for STTR proposal opportunities – ties w/regional industry 
  • Better integration of external & regional campuses 
  • More support for grant preparation (budgets/paperwork) 
  • Public/private partnerships 
  • Protect or free up faculty time for research 
  • Focus hires on critical areas 
  • Put our research results to set up small business & collaborations with large companies
