Diversity and Inclusion Grant Initiative
The Diversity and Inclusion Grant Initiative encourages efforts that support diversity, inclusion and collaboration at the Law School. To achieve this, the Dean of Students Office will fund student-led proposals up to $5,000 for initiatives that enhance collaboration, build community and embrace diversity and inclusion of all students with respect to race/ethnicity, gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, viewpoint, and more.
