Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Funding Requests

Thank you for your interest in applying for University Housing funds to support your campus diversity event! The social change committee will meet regularly to review application proposals, approve, and allocate funding. There will be a rubric based on the criteria listed below used to assess the applications.

To be eligible to receive funding, requests must:

  • Be submitted by a university department or by a university-sponsored student, staff, or faculty organization
  • Support the University Housing Strategic Plan goal of cultivating an environment of equity and well-being
  • Directly benefit Cal Poly housing residents

Please keep in mind that due to limited funds, we may not be able to fund all applications which meet the funding criteria. In general, though, recipients can expect to receive between $100 and $1000 in funding.

Application Due Date

The University Housing social change committee that approves and allocates funds meets weekly. Your application is due at least one month prior to the event date to allow time for review.

Additional Requirements

University Housing will e-mail funding recipients our logo to be included on all marketing materials and an online form Event Summary Sheet to be returned no later than two weeks after the event.
