Program Innovation Fund

The Program Innovation Fund (PIF) is a College-wide initiative at RRC that provides support for projects outside of normal departmental operations which advance teaching and learning through innovation and continuous improvement. Projects could include both the initiation of some activity, service or resource development or the elaboration of those existing to increase their effectiveness and efficiency.
