Innovation Grants Available
Have a great idea for improving campus life? President Fox has announced a new Innovation Grants program. Recognizing that great ideas come from many sources, and that St. Lawrence's future depends upon encouraging creativity of its faculty, staff and students, most especially in the face of economic and fiscal pressures, the St. Lawrence Innovation Grants program will award up to $2,500 per project. It is intended to support new initiatives proposed by faculty, staff and students; applications will be reviewed and approved by a faculty-staff-student committee appointed by President Fox.

Two of the best possible indicators of our institutional strength and promise, retention and graduation rates, are in top form.
