SB Wins Innovation Grant

Ppslogo 1

ppslogoThe Partnership for Public Service has announced the winners of the 2010-11 Call to Serve Innovation Grants, and Stony Brook is among five campuses nationwide to receive a grant.

The Partnership’s 2009 Where the Jobs Are report shed light on the federal governmentโ€™s need to fill 273,000 mission critical occupations (MCO) in the next three years. The 2010-11 Innovation Grant campuses are focusing their efforts in MCO areas such as engineering, information technology, and business. The other schools that were chosen are Swarthmore College; University of California, Davis; University of Chicago; and University of South Carolina.

Stony Brook and the other four schools all demonstrated innovative ideas for promoting public service, a strong base of existing programs, well-structured connections with mission critical occupations, and plans to sustain their campaign well into the future.

The five new campuses will join recipients from the last two years to form a cohort of 15 colleges and universities that are actively creating models for how to build federal service campaigns.
