2012-2013 Access and Diversity Initiative Grant
The Tennessee Board of Regents' Office of Access and Diversity (OAD) just announced
the 2012-2013 Access and Diversity Initiative Grant program. TBR will entertain applications
to fund initiatives that are aligned with the goals of the institutional diversity
and strategic plans.
Each campus will be allowed to submit two (2) grants in each of the following areas
that are designed to further the system's overall goal of increasing the educational
attainment level of all citizens of the state of Tennessee while maintaining a strong
focus on the value of diversity to the educational process.
- Student Outreach and Success - Recruitment/Retention
- Faculty/Staff Recruitment/Retention
- Campus climate activities
Within these programs, TBR will entertain the following categories:
- Pilot Program Projects
- Program Enhancement Projects
- One Time Program Grants
- Multi-year Grants
Proposals should serve underrepresented or underutilized populations including, but
not limited to, racial/ethnic minorities, the economically disadvantaged, persons
with disabilities, or should address issues affecting groups such as diversity or
Because each University can only submit two (2) proposals for each category, an internal
committee will make the final selections for submission to TBR.
Questions concerning the program should be directed to Michelle Banks. Final submissions
should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 13, 2012.
