The College has formalized its support for student-led, diversity-oriented meetings and I would love your help getting the word out to your students. Similar to the Student Travel and Meeting Fund, students (individually or as an organization) can apply for up to $1500 in support of meetings attended by CoEnv students where the central goals of the meeting include linking science to policy or real-world application, and advancing diversity and inclusion within the College, the University and relevant STEM fields.
- Support for new student organizations within the College with a diversity, inclusion or equity focus
- Student-organized trainings, workshops, lectures with a diversity, inclusion or equity focus
- Events for students to present environmental justice-related research
- Student-led discussions of race, equity and inclusion
