IdeaBox is a place for staff and faculty to put their ideas year-round.

Did you miss your chance to submit a great idea to a prior campaign? Do you want to shed light on a critical issue to improve our University? We want to know about it!  

IdeaBox is a place for UC San Diego faculty, staff and student employees to submit and store ideas on an ongoing basis. Ideas submitted here will be reviewed periodically and could potentially turn into quick win initiatives, move to a future active campaign, or serve as a catalyst for a new campaign.

  • Log into IdeaBox with your UC San Diego email credentials or Business Systems credentials

A subcommittee of the SC-SPOC (Standing Committee on Service and People-Oriented Culture) will review HOT! ideas (minimum 5 comments and 25 votes) in IdeaBox intermittently and make recommendations for next steps. Remember that you can share your idea by emailing directly from IdeaWave to colleagues to motivate and promote discussion, which will help your idea achieve HOT! status.

Although the committee is unable to provide individual responses to every idea in IdeaBox, ideas that progress to management review and beyond will be designated in the idea progress bar so you can see which ideas are moved forward.

Since last year, submissions to IdeaBox have increased from 52 ideas to 101 ideas! Three ideas have gained Hot! status.
