I'm not sure how long this has been posted on the foundation's website but it is a pretty good overview of the 'Big Ideas' FSU is working on as part of the billion dollar campaign. I'm sure that once the campaign enters it's public phase, these ideas will be more detailed. I'd love to see a short YouTube video for each with pretty pictures, flashy lights, you know...the whole shebang.
The best bet for FSU to gain headway as an academically strong university is to start tackling nationally relevant issues.
I am happy to see that they are linking leadership, business, and STEM together within this initiative.
It's going to be VERY crucial at the national level, within the next couple of months, that they tout these "foci".
Sure, the "means" (money) for supporting the listed activities is a concern.
FSU must show it can be self-sustainable in funding these efforts.
I think they won't need the flashy lights or pretty pictures if they can show it AT LEAST makes sense to support these activities in the current economic climate. (Which isn't really hard to do, IMHO)

Here is a very nice booklet that will be used for the billion dollar campaign. Plenty of info to chew on.
I think there is something for everyone to support so watch these closely as we move into the public phase of the campaign, probably sometime in the new year. And be ready to open your address books and wallets.
What do you like best? What do you think should be changed or re-focused?
