The University of Toledo Office of Diversity and Inclusion is launching the Staff Diversity Mini-Grant Program.

These grants will provide financial assistance for new and innovative projects, workshops and activities that strengthen excellence in diversity and inclusion.

Three $500 grants will be awarded each academic year.

“This program is in support of staff increasing students’ sense of belonging in our diverse student population,” Malaika Bell, program manager for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, said. “This sense of belonging has a direct correlation to higher graduation and retention rates.”

The deadline to apply is Monday, Nov. 25. Go to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion website.

The awards will be announced in December so the programs can be held during spring semester, Bell said.
