Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Collaboration Grant Information

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Collaboration Grant

In the 2017 Autumn Quarter, the Expository Writing Program was supported by a seed grant from the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity to create a series of research clusters and grant opportunities for graduate instructors in both the EWP and Interdisciplinary Writing Program (IWP). From this seed grant, the EWP created the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Collaboration Grant funding 5 collaborative group projects that focused on developing composition curriculum, teacher resources, and/or research initiatives that center issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the writing classroom. Additionally, these grants sought to foster collaboration, conversation, and community among writing teachers invested in these issues and to generate resources that contribute to equity work within our teaching community.

After this first year, the EWP is proudly continuing to annually offer this grant, funding projects that focus on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The EWP is interested in funding a wide-range of collaborations, projects, and group configurations. For example, small groups might work exclusively with each other on a project (e.g., developing classroom activities; collaboratively created curriculum for a course) or might facilitate activities that are open to anyone interested (e.g., organize reading groups or workshops open to all). Groups should plan to publicly share something concrete that emerges from their collaboration with the broader teaching community (e.g., a public forum presentation, workshop, teaching artifacts or resources that can be shared on our website, etc).
