One of the strengths of the School of Computer Science is the entrepreneurial nature of its students, faculty and researchers. The Dean's Innovation Fund allows the dean to quickly support new ideas that emerge during the year that aren't covered by the operational budget or research grants. The dean can also use this fund to improve the quality of life for graduate and undergraduate students.
