The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is pleased to announce the opportunity for student teams to apply for a Student Diversity and Inclusion Mini-Grant. The purpose of the Student Diversity Grant is to encourage students to design and implement ways to move the university toward becoming a truly diverse institution. Community, opportunity and inclusion are three of Northern’s core values. In order to encourage collaborative work among members of the university community, teams are encouraged to include students from different backgrounds and interest areas. While all successful applications will emphasize some aspect of diversity, applicants are encouraged to think broadly and creatively about their proposals.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, in collaboration with the President's Committee on Diversity and the President's Committee on Gender and Sexuality,  will provide support each fiscal year, for distribution as Student Diversity and Inclusion Mini-Grants.
