Proposals for Campus Climate Improvement Grants Sought

Dignity and Respect wordmark

The Office of Equity and Inclusion is accepting applications for 2020-21 Campus Climate Improvement Grants until noon, Monday, March 30. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff are encouraged to submit their creative ideas for fostering connections on campus in the upcoming academic year.

These grants, ranging from $250 to $2,500, are intended to support projects that help build community and create a more inclusive campus. The funded projects include film series, book clubs, workshops, art exhibits, lectures, events and more. In total, more than $20,000 in funding will be awarded.

Priority will be given to proposals that are likely to yield a more sustained climate improvement and involve members of our campus community. Special consideration will be given to projects that promote cross-campus, intergroup, multi-unit partnership approaches to support community.

Prior to application, prospective grantees must attend one scheduled information session to be eligible to apply. Informational sessions will be held:

  • Wednesday, March 4, 10-11 a.m., Goodell Hall, Bernie Dallas Room
  • Friday, March 6, 11 a.m.-12 p.m., Goodell Hall, Bernie Dallas Room
