Dean's Innovation Fund

We have all felt the impact of COVID-19.  At Smith, we too are facing disruptions and adversities that could never have been anticipated.

Faculty and teaching excellence, as well as the student experience, are hallmarks of Smith School of Business and Queen’s. Especially during this time, we must operate at the forefront of technology to succeed and adapt in this virtual and integrated world. This includes preparing and supporting students and educators for distance learning, as well as improving technology-enabled teaching tools, interactive tutorials, and cases.

In response to the current situation, Smith is dedicated to providing support to those students directly affected while continuing to deliver an exceptional learning experience for our students.

The Dean’s Innovation Fund at Smith School of Business traditionally provides flexible funding to support the many programs and extra-curriculars offered. However, for the foreseeable future, this fund will be utilized to provide direct and immediate financial resources for emergency financial relief for students, health and wellness support for students, business strategy internships (paid) and necessary investments in teaching and learning technologies for faculty to support innovative remote instruction.

This a challenging time for all, but we are grateful for the Smith Community and your desire to help.
