  • Expanded Communication Processes
  • Internal and External Collaboration

Grants Department activities are designed to maximize the efficient use of resources, working smarter and maximizing strengths to achieve the goals of the Grants Department and the strategic priorities of the College through outcomes such as:

  • Higher Return on Investment
  • Greater Productivity
  • Minimized Risk
