The Good Idea Fund
The Good Idea Fund Committee is funded by student activity fees and exists as a way for individual students, faculty, and staff to apply for and access student activity fee funds to engage the undergraduate student body in a broad spectrum of Student Life and campus-based initiatives.
Goals of The Good Idea Fund:
- Enable individual student, faculty, and staff ideas to benefit the undergraduate student body
- Engage undergraduate students within the Drexel University community through the implementation of their ideas
- Provide a diverse array of student-created and endorsed programs, events, and projects for the undergraduate student body
