Block Projects

What is a Block Project?

Block Projects are commissioned by the president and are designed to bring a new level of recognition, support and structure to collaborative work. These projects, which give intense focus over a short period of time to accomplish a specific mission, have set beginnings and ends to their work. 

How can I submit an idea for a Block Project or offer my input?

In addition to reaching out to the members of the president's cabinet, ideas can also be submitted through this website. Suggestions received through the website will be collected by Jermyn Davis and submitted to the president.

What is the process for an idea to become a Block Project?

1. After a suggestion is given to the president, it will be vetted by the president's cabinet. If the president approves the suggestion, the president will then appoint a leader for the block project, and a team of faculty, staff, and/or students as deemed appropriate.

2. Ideas submitted as Block Projects will be listed on this website’s front page. Updates on progress and resolution will also be posted.
