Diversity Mini Grants Available!

Diversity Grants are awarded by the Diversity and Inclusion Council to UNI projects and events that enhance awareness of and education about issues of diversity at UNI. Diversity Grants align with the definition, mission and vision of diversity at UNI.  At UNI, diversity describes the rich differences that people bring to the University of Northern Iowa community.  It can refer broadly to culture, identity and ideology, or more specifically to age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, gender identity, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, marital status, national origin, or veteran status. Projects and events that specifically address these rich differences, that work to create a more welcoming community, and that prepare students to thrive in a diverse, global environment are encouraged. 

In accordance with Diversity and Inclusion Council goals for the 2016-17 academic year, grants targeting efforts to retain students of color at the University will be given first priority.
