The Rensselaer Idea Bank is now closed. Thank you to all who submitted an idea! Our strategic planning committees have reviewed the submissions and will reflect on these thoughtful ideas and respond as appropriate in their final reports. We hope to release these final committee reports to the Rensselaer community in early September, with a goal to complete the Rensselaer Forward Plan by December 2023.

Can the 'Read More' button be more prominently displayed to signal if there is more to read? or place a ".... more" at the bottom of whatever can be displayed.  Thanks!
