Sponsored by the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID), the Diversity Associates Program provides instructors and staff with the opportunity to execute a diversity-related curriculum development project of their own design.

 

The Office of Institutional Diversity is pleased to announce the 2017-18 cohort of Diversity Associates.

Diversity Associates are partnered with an Office of Institutional Diversity faculty mentors to develop and implement projects that focus on one or more of the following areas: race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, national origin, disability, gender, sexual identity, age, and/or religious viewpoints.
Expected outcomes are either (1) conference proposal, article submission or book chapter, (2) a plan for pedagogical innovations including a description of initial steps completed, (3) immersive learning grant application or undergraduate research product, (4) plan for conducting a diversity dialogue, or (5) the development of an idea for a grant project or grant submission.
 
This was a record year for applications. The committee received 28 applications for the 10 slots. The grants were distributed: 2 grant writing proposals, 4 research, 2 inclusive pedagogy, 2 immersive learning/diversity dialogues.

Please watch for updates about these projects in the months ahead.
