The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity routinely engages the campus and broader community in conversations and initiatives around diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage grassroots efforts that encourage related thought, conversation and action.

Some resources are listed below:

Towards Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (TIDE) Grants

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity offers TIDE grants through a competitive process. The purpose of the grant is to help facilitate the infusion of inclusion,

diversity, and equity into all aspects of our campus by leveraging the creativity and passion of the members of our community. All members of the community are eligible and encouraged to apply. Collaboration between and among faculty, students, and staff is strongly encouraged, as are projects designed to have a positive impact on multiple stakeholder groups on campus and in the surrounding community. Requests for proposals will be issued one or two times a year.

Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Workshops

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity and partners across campus lead and facilitate conversations and workshops on matters of diversity, inclusion and equity on and off campus. These include hiring workshops aimed at minimizing bias in the faculty and staff recruiting processes, identity workshops, bias workshops, other topics, including those that focus on religion, micro- and macro-aggressions and affirmations, Title IX, and accessibility. Workshops may be requested by emailing us at [email protected]. Upon receipt of your request, you will be contacted to discuss any special requests, audience, and format.
