Dear campus community,

The Office of Inclusive Excellence invites proposals on “Building Community to Confront Extremism” as part of the Confronting Extremism Program. This funding opportunity is open to Senate faculty and to directors of student resource centers at UCI. The deadline has been extended to June 4, 2021.

View additional details and submit proposals no later than 5 p.m. PT on Friday, June 4, at:

Lessons from the current pandemic showed us fractures at key intersections of community, thriving, and wellness due to magnified inequities in health, economic and other social systems. As the three pillars of community, thriving, and wellness are considered foundational to current UCI efforts for inclusive excellence, the Office of Inclusive Excellence invites projects aligned to address UCI community needs while confronting extreme ideology, practices, policies and systems that are far outside of the norms for verdant and democratic values. Central to all submissions should be a focus on inclusive excellence, and its aims to practice equity and inclusion of diverse members to realize social justice outcomes.


Take the Pledge
