The DEI Initiatives Program supports efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in our ECE community. The 2023 program targets specific activities within our overarching vision and goals and invites ECE faculty, students, and staff to participate. Budgets up to $5,000 will be considered for projects ranging in duration from six months to one year. The deadline to submit a proposal is April 30th, 2023. 

Proposals must fall under one of the following areas of focus:

  • Raising awareness about contemporary DEI issues
  • Understanding DEI issues within ECE
  • Enhancing and strengthening civility in ECE
  • Collaborations with MSI Institutions.

**Student projects will require a faculty sponsor.
