The deadline to submit ideas to the university's Idea Lab crowdsourcing website has been extended to April 24.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit their ideas to three challenges. President Ron Daniels' Ten by Twenty Challenge draws inspiration from the second priority of the 10x2020 plan: individual excellence. The Diversity Leadership Council will accept proposals for its annual Diversity Innovation Grants. And the JHU Office of Sustainability will support the top environmental idea with its Eco-Smart Acorn Grant.
Online voting will take place April 26 through May 4. Funding will go to the teams that receive the most votes to implement their proposals, and additional projects to receive funding will be chosen by a committee. Parameters specific to each of the challenges are outlined on the website.
