In October 2018, University leadership introduced ND Innovates, an initiative focused on increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the University. Faculty and staff are encouraged to reflect on their shared responsibility to steward the University's human, physical and financial resources.
As faculty and staff identify areas of the University to be improved, they are invited to submit those ideas to ND Innovates. The savings from the implementation of these ideas will go directly to fund student financial aid.
Since ND Innovates launched, employees have submitted over 150 ideas. The Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Research, led by Vice President David Bailey, reviews the submissions, distributes them to the units of the University that are responsible for potential implementation, helps develop solutions and monitors progress.
