Funding Requests

The vision of the University of Oregon’s Division of Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is to make inclusion, equity, and diversity both essential and commonplace within the University community. To further DEI’s mission in providing central leadership for campus-wide equity and inclusion policies and programs, a portion of DEI’s funding has been designated to support initiatives, speakers, and activities that meaningfully contribute to advancing equity and inclusion at the UO. Although DEI is comprised of five units, including the Office of the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, the Center on Diversity and Community (CoDaC), the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (CMAE), the Many Nations Longhouse, and the Multicultural Center, all funding requests must be submitted through the office of the Vice President for Equity and Inclusion rather than individual units.

If you are interested in having DEI sponsor or co-sponsor your initiative, speaker, or activity please complete and submit this form. Due to limited resources, the amount requested may not exceed $500.
