Butler Innovation Frequently Asked Questions
All current Butler faculty, staff, and students can submit an idea. We think great ideas can come from all members of our community.
Absolutely! You can submit as many ideas as you would like. However, we do ask that you submit a new application for each of your ideas—basically one idea per application.
If I am a Butler employee, do I have to have get my dean’s or supervisor’s approval before I submit an idea?
No, you do not need to get approval from your dean or supervisor before submitting your idea. Just go ahead and submit!
