Have you ever seen Shark Tank? Would you like to pitch your idea to solve a campus issue by planning a large educational initiative? What kind of impact could you make on your campus in a particular area? What could you do with $15,000.00 of educational resources to address an issue on your campus? CAMPUSPEAK would like to work with you! Do you have an innovative solution to make change happen, but don’t have the resources to execute all the educational components necessary for a comprehensive approach?

Registration is now open!

The deadline to apply is:

AFLV-Central is January 27, 2020
AFLV-West is March 27, 2020

Last February, I took a chance on a competition that ended up giving me confidence in myself to create meaningful and lasting change at Wright State University (WSU). While it (PITCH) seemed intimidating, I believe that the experience of competing in PITCH has really changed me for the better. Without it, I would not have had the push to begin creating the position of diversity and inclusion chair and creating a sustainable way to change Wright State University for the better.
