Funding Requests

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) collaborates with and financially supports many departments, offices, and organizations across campus in efforts to promote a more welcoming campus climate.

Note: The CDI does not support research or development activities for individual faculty and/or staff members. Such requests should be directed to the Provost’s Office (faculty), Staff Committee, or an individual department.

Submit Funding Requests Here after reviewing the below criteria.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to the CDI by emailing
