Diversity Infusion Grant

The Diversity Infusion Grant (DIG) supports the research and resources necessary to make course revisions that broaden, refresh, and further SAIC’s curricular offerings in relation to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Grantees will receive $1000 to support this work. The Diversity Advisory Group’s Curriculum Committee has created the SAIC Diversity Infusion Grant (DIG) to facilitate more intentional DEI practices in classrooms by faculty. The funds are intended to support faculty incorporating more diverse reading selections, a greater variety of global images, guest speakers, DEI pedagogy, and/or diversity related project assignments.
