Applications are now open online here for the Gannon community to apply for funds to attend professional experiences pertinent to your role at Gannon and related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

All full-time employees are eligible to apply for this individual grant. Examples of appropriate activities include attending a conference and presenting work done at Gannon, attending a workshop to gain specialized training that can then be established at Gannon via a train-the-trainer model to other employees and/or student leaders, or professional development and scholarly conferences specific to academic disciplines.  

To qualify for the DEI Professional Development Grant, a conference or workshop should have a specific focus on a domain of study associated with DEI work. Some examples include racial/ethnic diversity, social justice, representation and inclusion in STEM, implicit bias, inclusive classroom practices, LGBTQ+ populations and issues, disabilities, economic inequality, and cultural competency. 

Eligibility guidelines and detailed information and instructions on applications, proposals, presentations and more for the DEI Professional Development Grant can be found here on the DEI portal page
