DEI Program Development Fund

A Culture of Change

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council coordinates Davenport's efforts to become a more diverse, equitable and inclusive culture. We are looking for ideas and opportunities to enhance DEI across all campuses. 

In an effort to do so, we are soliciting proposals for activities and programs that will help us achieve DEI objectives shared in Davenport University's Vision 2015:

  1. We will be a community where similarities and differences are respected and celebrated, multiple perspectives and diversity of thought are embraced and people are engaged in inter-cultural experiences, including international education opportunities.
  2. We will actively promote full participation of all community members with an acknowledgment of the challenges faced by people from historically marginalized groups.
  3. We will be the leading example of a diverse and equitable organization as reflected by the composition and behavior of our faculty, staff and students.

We also encourage proposals that initiate new efforts and engage broad groups of students and/or employees across our campuses and on-line communities.

For the purpose of the Diversity Program Development Fund: Program Development is defined as the creation, planning and implementation of a coordinated set of activities and events designed to enhance internal diversity program development.
