Proposals sought for diversity and inclusion initiatives at Penn State

The Equal Opportunity Planning Committee (EOPC) invites Penn State faculty and staff to submit proposals for EOPC funding to support the University’s diversity, inclusion, and equity efforts and advance the University’s strategic plan (see “Advancing Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity”) with investments in programs and ideas.

Funding from EOPC is intended to provide seed money for innovative pilot programs and existing initiatives that help create and support a climate of equity throughout Penn State. EOPC proposals are reviewed by volunteers who represent different campuses and units. Over the 2021-22 EOPC cycle, 33 initiatives were funded from eight different funding categories including: campus climate, curriculum, faculty and staff recruiting, faculty and staff retention, leadership development, student recruiting, student retention and graduation, and organizational change.

Deadline: Friday, December 10, 2021
