DUE: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Grant Proposals

Friday, January 13, 2023

The College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences aims to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion, through programs that cultivate a respectful, inclusive environment where all members of our community can exchange ideas, grow, and flourish. Excellence is achieved through the engagement of diverse perspectives, expertise, and contributions. We are now accepting proposals for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) grants to stimulate and support new ideas.

Proposals may pertain to student, staff, and faculty activities, including, recruitment and retention, partnerships with other institutions, hosting visitors, participating in special events, research or educational programs, pressing issues of the day, and any other initiatives that foster a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and welcoming environment for students, staff, and faculty. Of particular interest are projects that test new ideas or proven initiatives from other fields, universities, etc., and these serve as effective models that could be broadly applied and embedded in Arts & Sciences programs, practices, and culture. Crosscutting initiatives that engage and benefit more than one department or group will also be viewed favorably.


Please use the proposal template to prepare your proposal (Link to download the template). Proposals need to include a project description, itemized budget, and statement of support from the department chair or program director.

Please combine your materials into one file saved as: your last name, first name, DEIGrant_Name of your department/program. Example: Doe_Jane_DEI_Music.
