If I am submitting an application, should I talk with my manager about it first?


Yes, it is required that you share your interest in submitting a proposal with your manager. The President’s Administrative Innovation Fund does have support from President Bacow, the Executive Vice President Katie Lapp and the other senior leaders at the University including School Administrative Deans and Central Vice Presidents. We are hopeful that your manager will work with you to determine how best you can fit this opportunity into your day-to-day work.
