Introducing Bold BW

Bold BW: See differently. See opportunities. See impact.

Announcing BOLD BW, a campus-wide initiative to empower innovative thinking and transform the work we do with a relentless focus on student success.

This initiative provides BW faculty and staff with a platform to share and develop transformative ideas. Initially, we will build on the way we work together to develop an innovation ecosystem, with the practices, resources, and leadership support needed to transform ideas into reality and sustain innovative activity.

We encourage you to submit your ideas or work with colleagues to identify solutions to challenges or ways to take advantage of the opportunities you see.

Powered by the Center for Innovation & Growth and the Burton D. Morgan Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurial Studies.
