The Office for Equity and Diversity will not be opening a new Campus Climate Micro-Grant cycle in fall 2020. Due to COVID-19, many of last year’s recipients have not yet used their funds, and we plan to monitor the situation this fall before making a decision on a new cycle. 

We will provide updates this spring with information on future Campus Climate Micro-Grant funding cycles. The Campus Climate Mirco-Grant Project is made possible with generous support from President Gabel.
