To All Faculty and Staff,
I believe that encouraging diversity in the learning experience is a key component that contributes significantly to the quality of life on campus and inspires us to even greater accomplishments. The Presidential Mini-Grants for Departmental Diversity Initiatives help bring to fruition the ideas that enable the University to adapt to the changing needs of our community. They are designed to foster the projects that are the seeds of growth for the University, and that will help us improve our research and work together with greater understanding.
Drawing on a total pool of $30,000, the award amount granted will be determined by the number of grants selected and approved for funding. Each Mini-Grant recipient will be recognized at the Annual University Awards Dinner and will receive a certificate.
Therefore, I invite you to take part in this year's Presidential Mini-Grant Program by reading the General Background information and application process which can be found by clicking on the link contained below. The application deadline is Friday, February 22, 2013; so please be sure to submit your application by the deadline date.
Thank you for taking the time to give this serious consideration.
Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D.
