Diversity and Inclusion Fund

 

The budget is used for partnership support and programming such as hosting events, bringing speakers on campus, and off campus events.

Requirements / Eligibility: Typically clubs or students come to us if they have an event idea that fosters empowerment for marginalized students or educates or promotes some form of tradition, culture, or new perspective on campus. Clubs can also apply for this funding if their club has been viewed as a positive influence on CMC's campus.

Amounts: The amount varies. The beginning budget for this fund for the 2017-2018 was $5,000. Refer to the current budget document, for the current budget for this fund, which can be found here. The fund amount will be listed underneath "Diversity and Inclusion Chair".

Annual Deadline: Our budget is available year around, however, if a club or someone is looking for funding for an event, we prefer notice to the Diversity and Inclusion Chair far in advance.

Examples of projects: We've helped provide additional funding for the club of the month, in coordination with the Campus Organizations Chair. Certain Athenaeum speakers, such as Desmond Tutu's daughter, in the past have also been funded by Diversity and Inclusion Fund. In addition, we helped fund Sanskriti, a popular 5C South Asian Culture Show, in the 2016 Spring Semester.
