The Office of Inclusion and Diversity, or OID, encourages students, faculty and staff to create new opportunities to explore, advance and understand topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. The Inclusive Excellence Programming Grant is specifically designed to provide support for new, innovative and impactful approaches that advance diversity, equity, inclusion and related concepts.

Examples of programs that may be supported include lectures, symposia, workshops, conferences, performances, visit/preview days and other programmatic efforts. The Inclusive Excellence Programming Fund Review Committee will consider all requests and make decisions based on available funds, and typical funding will be around $2,000.

Applications are now open for the second round of grants through Feb. 6. Click here to submit an application and learn more.
