Let’s explore the evolution and influence of a grassroots innovation interest group at California State University, Northridge and how its weekly meetings:

• Reinvent the traditional university framework of collegiality and collaboration to inspire innovation and creativity
• Break down silos by convening individuals across functions and organizational levels
• Create a safe, positive, collaborative space for conversations about what is and what might be
• Welcome diverse participants who are unified by a shared enthusiasm for finding new ways to achieve campus priorities
• Maximize engagement with a reliable communications strategy and regular meetings that keep the innovation conversation steadily moving forward
• Articulate and foster an open attendance policy, enabling occasional participation to be easy and guilt-free
• Define “innovation” and “creativity” broadly, allowing for unexpected connections which spark project or program trajectories that transcend preconceived ideas of what innovation looks like
• Provide a big-picture view of the university enterprise and its many moving pieces, giving individuals a better sense of how their work aligns with and can support the whole
• Carry the full support of the University President, which affirms and energizes attendee participation
