Co-Funding Program:
This process serves to advance diversity and inclusion on campus where you can receive up to $500 from ODI to help co-fund/co-sponsor your event, activity, or project. This program is available to all campus constituents.

For this academic year, this program will approve approximately five (5) proposals per semester for fall and spring.

Decisions are made by the Co-Funding Committee, which consists of:

  • Lamara J. Burgess, Director of Student Support Management
  • Wiebke Deimling, Assistant Professor, Philosophy
  • Maria-Elisa Gallant, Assistant Director of Student Leadership & Programming
  • Paul Phillips, Assistant Athletic Director, Head Swim Coach and Aquatics Director
  • Allison Shilling, Director of Campus Life, Student Leadership & Programming

The Co-Funding Committee will review all proposals collectively after the deadline to determine which proposals best accomplish ODI’s mission. Responses will be sent out to everyone who submitted a proposal by the response date indicated below.

Fall 2022
Proposal Deadline: November 1, 2022
Receive response by: November 8, 2022

Spring 2023
Proposal Deadline: March 21, 2023
Receive response by: March 28, 2023

Activities, projects, and events that qualify for co-funding/co-sponsorship should have other funding sources and directly meet at least one of the following criteria:

  1. Foster a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus environment
  2. Support intellectual dialogue on campus in fields directly related to diversity, equity, and inclusion
  3. Bring people of different backgrounds together to participate in a campus event that celebrates and/or advances diversity and inclusion at Clark University

There is a $500.00 commitment cap per initiative. Also, each campus department/organization can receive no more than two funding commitments per academic year.
NOTE: This program does not consider proposals for co-sponsorship to conferences unless there is an added element of engagement with the campus post-conference.
