Do you have a game-changing idea to improve how we work?

We are now accepting applications for the FY20 President’s Administrative Innovation Fund! 

We will continue to seek projects in our core operating areas of academic administration, talent development, and service delivery.  In addition, our priority theme for this year will be “Creating Connections and Community”.  Under this heading, we are especially seeking projects that facilitate cross-school and cross-unit initiatives, that expedite learning across organizational boundaries (both inside and outside of Harvard), and that continue our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

PAIF Fund Recipient Testimonials.

"The PAIF funding gave our goals a level of visibility we would not have experienced otherwise...by receiving PAIF funding it allowed our peers to see that the University had made this a priority which helped open doors and streamline conversations."

"A highlight from my experience was attending the cohort gatherings. It allowed our team to learn what other projects were going on around the University."

"The advisor assignments were by far one of the greatest aspects of this program; meeting regularly with our advisors provided concrete goal periods as well as kept this project at the top of our heavy workloads. Our advisors were engaged, eager to help and made every effort to make themselves available to us for whatever our needs."
