Tech Forward Diversity and Inclusion Initiative

This proposal outlines specific initiatives which will support the promotion of equity, inclusion, and collegiality, increase diversity, and provide a welcoming and rich cultural environment. Michigan Tech can begin to achieve these goals through targeted recruitment efforts utilizing out-of-the-box thinking and retention programs designed to impact a sense of belonging and campus climate. To move the needle forward, we also need to increase the number of diversity-related trainings and workshops and execute a plan for institutional commitment that will ensure these strategies are implemented, supported, and maintained. $200,000 First Year Funding, Total Funding $1,000,000
