Diversity Awareness Committee

DAC Funding Support for Diversity Events and Activities

We provide funding and other types of support for events and activities that encourage positive thought and action related to diversity. If the event you are planning fits this mission, we encourage you to apply for DAC funds. Please download and complete the Diversity Awareness Committee Support Request Form. Please make sure to include a full projected budget for your event. The application should be emailed to DAC Chair Michelle Rios-Dominguez. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The DAC can provide funding for diversity related events at a maximum of $300 towards general programs and $500 towards theme-related programs for the 2016-2017 academic year. While we prefer not to be the largest donor, in making its decision the DAC Funding Allocation Committee will consider the possibility of becoming the largest donor if your event cannot obtain money from other requested sources. If your proposal includes the request for DAC to be the largest donor, please provide as much detail as you can in your proposal about the status of your other funding sources. The committee may, in certain circumstances, fund up to 40% of your request, not to exceed $300 towards general programs and $500 towards theme-related programs*. We prefer to receive requests 2 months before the date of the event. Our deadline for proposal submission is 2 weeks prior to the event.
