Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Funding Requests


The goal of University Housing creating a diversity, equity, inclusion funding request is to have a transparent and accessible process in granting funding support for diversity and inclusion events that benefit residents.

The Process

The Housing DEI Funding committee will meet regularly to review application proposals, approve, and allocate funding. There is a rubric based on the criteria listed below used to assess the applications.

Application & Criteria

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 $500 in funding.

Application Due Date

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.
