A message to Think Big Seed and RFP finalists about final proposals

As the world changes around us so rapidly in response to COVID-19, we are profoundly grateful for your continued efforts to advance the university's strategic plan. Some of you have, understandably, expressed concern that you might not be able to accomplish exactly what you intended to propose in your Seed Sprint or RFP, given the current circumstances. We want to clarify that we would like you to write your final proposal as you initially intended; please submit what you would have proposed to accomplish in a pre-coronavirus world. We intend, however, to be as flexible as necessary about the implementation of the successful proposals. In other words, continue to THINK BIG, but know that we understand plans may have to change somewhat at the implementation stage given the current crisis.
