The Council on University Community is accepting proposals for the Chancellor’s Diversity Challenge Fund, which supports initiatives that promote the daily value of diversity in the intellectual life of the campus. Faculty, staff or students are eligible to apply for awards of up to $5,000.

Potential uses for the fund include presentations, workshops, trainings, cultural programs, exhibitions, films or speakers that address issues of diversity; research on issues of diversity; programs to integrate diversity into the classroom or that increase diversity in the academic pipeline; or projects that increase diversity through linkages with the Charlotte community.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Tuesday, March 21.
