Diversity & Inclusion Enrichment Grant
The purpose of the Diversity & Inclusion Enrichment Grant is to support initiatives that are aligned with OUDI’s diversity goals. From year-to-year the focus of the funding might change depending on the emphasis on particular initiatives that we believe will impact segments of the campus or the campus as a whole.
During the past year, the Collective Impact work which involves the whole university has been instrumental in establishing goals and identifying recommendations that address those goals. This year the Office of University Diversity & Inclusion (OUD&I) will be focusing on providing funding for guest speakers that align with the following Collective Impact areas.
- Campus Climate
- Recruitment and Retention of faculty, staff, and students
- Diversity in curriculum and co-curriculum
One aspect that will be critical in helping us determine funding is your statement outlining how your speaker will align with one or more of the identified areas.
Approved sponsorships must be paid on a state Guest Speaker Form. Funding will not be provided in any other formats. The maximum funding amount is $1,000 and will be based on the size of the intended audience.
- Cal Poly students, staff, faculty, or groups can apply for sponsorships
- One sponsorship may be granted to the individual or group per fiscal year
OUD&I will review requests on the following application cycle:
Fall 2018: Application due: Friday, October 19, 2018 by 5:00 p.m.
Winter 2019: Application due: Friday, February 1, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.
Spring 2019: Application due: Friday, April 26, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.
All approved sponsorships require you complete a short survey regarding the impact your event had on the Cal Poly community. You are welcomed to add any additional information on impact (number in attendance, evaluation results, anecdotal information, etc.) Survey results and additional comments will become part of an annual report. This is due to us within 30 days of the event. Failure to complete the survey will affect future funding.
