Streamline facilities, policies, and systems to enhance cross-disciplinary collaboration among units, faculty, staff and students
As faculty, staff, and students work together to pilot sustainable energy projects, systems will be streamlined to ensure timely implementation of successful projects. The university will also promote an entrepreneurial culture that rewards informed risk taking and timely decision making. As a result, the time it takes to reach decisions is decreased and projects move faster. MSU will then more favorably position itself to partner with external entities on sustainable energy research.
Conceivably, the faster MSU can create and pilot new sustainable energy solutions, the faster it can reach the physical campus targets. Furthermore, the university will demonstrate research leadership and fulfill its world-grant outreach mission.
