Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund provides dedicated support for student organizations and events that promote diversity, intercultural education, and support for marginalized students. The DEI Fund has $57 thousand to allocate during the 2023–24 academic year, provided by the Required Campus Fee.

To submit a request for Student Senate DEI funding, access the DEI Fund request form on Rock Chalk Central. Requests for DEI funding will be heard and voted on once every two weeks while classes are in session. Allocations are decided by student representatives from the Student Senate councils, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity, and the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity. For questions and comments, contact the Fund Development Director.

Meeting documents and decisions on DEI funding are available on the Student Senate Teams workspace.
