CU Innovation & Efficiency Awards

What are the CU Innovation & Efficiency Awards?

The CU Innovation & Efficiency Awards Program -- previously known as the CU Shared Practices (CUSP) Program -- is a recognition program designed to highlight and share the creative processes of CU employees. Have you implemented new ways of working ... ways that create efficiencies ... save time ... save money? Through the CU I&E Awards, you can share what you've done with colleagues across the University. You may inspire other employees to take a new look at how their departments work. You may win a cash prize for what you've done for your own department.
