The University of Nebraska’s Office of Diversity, Access and Inclusion is accepting proposals for Inclusive Excellence Development Grants. The deadline is Nov. 22 at 5 p.m.
These grants provide system-level support for implementing or strengthening sustainable initiatives that advance diversity, access and inclusion on an NU campus. The initiatives should lead to equitable outcomes in one or more of the following priority areas:
- Campus climate.
- Student recruitment and retention.
- Faculty and staff recruitment and retention.
Eight grants worth up to $3,000 each are offered during two funding cycles per calendar year, as funds are available. Application requirements and examples of previously successful projects are available here.
Proposals must include collaboration across groups, offices, departments or divisions and may involve partners external to the university. Only activities that are free and open to the university community will be funded. Funding cannot be used for off-campus travel or to support salaries.
These development grants can “scale up” existing initiatives or support projects that grow over time, while the newly created President’s Inclusive Excellence Collaboration Award rewards initiatives with a proven record of success.
Grant awards will be announced Dec. 20.
