Dear colleagues,

UCI faculty and staff are invited to attend one of two virtual information sessions on the Advancing Faculty Diversity (AFD) program that will be hosted by the University of California, Office of the President on April 14 and April 19. Session presenters will discuss their recently opened Request for Proposals with $3M available funding to advance diverse faculty recruitment and retention.

RSVP for either of the AFD information sessions, scheduled 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. on April 14 and April 19, by emailing Patricia.Osorio-Odea@ucop.edu.

Both information sessions include the same information about eligibility, process, and review criteria, as well as discussion to address questions about the AFD funding opportunities. Potential proposers are not required to attend any information session.

The AFD proposals submissions are due May 21, 2021. Those eligible faculty interested in submitting proposals should contact me at inclusion@uci.edu at their earliest convenience. For more information and to download the full Request for Proposal, please visit the Office of Inclusive Excellence webpage under the “Additional Funding Opportunities for Faculty” tab at: https://inclusion.uci.edu/advance/funding-programs/.
