UNH’s newly formed Inclusion Council provided a funding opportunity of $2,500 from the Office of Community, Equity, and Diversity, with an additional $2,500 match potential for qualifying projects.
The goal of the Dive in and Deliver initiative is to explore projects on any of our three UNH campuses that work to integrate diversity and inclusion into its efforts. The program seeks to attract students, faculty, and staff to design sustainable programs which help build and promote UNH as an inclusive community.
The Inclusion Council received 10 proposals and a review committee made the final decision to award 4 projects this year. Projects will have an 18-month time frame for completion, running from January 2, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
4 Winning Proposals - Fall 2019
1) Partnering for Successful Student Transitions: The UNH Manchester College Readiness program
2) Expanding Inclusivity and Reducing Compassion Fatigue: Online Empathy Training Modules for Library Faculty and Staff Who Interact with Students of Diverse Backgrounds
3) Diving In and Delivering on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with Volunteers, the Face of UNH Cooperative Extension
