Call for Proposals:
Student Diversity Initiative

Sponsored by the President’s Diversity Initiative

The President’s Diversity Initiative invites proposals for student-inspired projects that help build and support a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming campus climate for all. We are especially interested in projects that create community and connection across diverse groups. The idea is to support projects that engage students in conversation and activities that connect people from seemingly different backgrounds.

Priority will be given to projects that involve collaboration and have the potential for a longer-term impact toward making the campus climate welcoming and supportive for all.

The President’s Diversity Initiative expects to fund five projects, each to a maximum of $500. Any student (undergraduate or graduate), student organization, or student group (including clubs, residence halls, sororities/fraternities, honor societies, etc.) is welcome to apply.

All student entries require a faculty recommendation prior to submitting a proposal. (1) Please present your proposal to your selected faculty member for recommendation and obtain their approval and comments regarding how your project meets the Student Diversity Initiative criteria. (2) With their recommendation complete, you may submit your proposal through the link below.

Maximum funding is $500. The deadline for proposals to be received is October 12, 2012.
