Inclusion & Diversity Funding Opportunities

The Equity and Diversity Activities Grants Program of the Committee on Equity and Diversity (CED) encourages and supports initiatives that highlight the benefits and value of diversity to academic excellence and that help create and sustain an inclusive community. Faculty members, departments, centers, and institutes are encouraged to apply for funding to cover costs associated with special events, speakers, workshops, or programs that help advance A&S efforts toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive climate. Programs that are open to more than one unit within A&S are encouraged, as are programs open to multiple groups, including faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and/or staff members.

Applications are accepted for:

  • Special events featuring a guest speaker or panel discussion
  • Professional development workshops or programs related to increasing and sustaining diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Initiatives to improve inclusion and diversity in foundational or gateway courses
  • Collaborative Reading Groups on topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion with a duration of 1-2 semesters
  • Intergroup Dialogue programs addressing issues of identity, bias, inclusion, and community building that span demographic and/or role (i.e., faculty, student, staff) boundaries
  • Other events or programs responsive to this Request for Proposals
