Diversity and Inclusion Committee Collaboration Grants

The purpose of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee’s collaboration grant is to promote interaction and discourse among student organizations. The grant helps lift financial burdens a student organization may bear when planning their programs, motivating them to focus on program quality and efficacy. This grant is aimed towards groups who normally do not collaborate with each other, or hold distinctly different perspectives. Grant programs should provide spaces for civil discourse about differences or areas of intersection.
