EOPC supports and advances the University’s strategic plan. View “Advancing Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity” with investments in your programs and ideas. 

EOPC encourages you to consider submitting a proposal to gain support for equity, respect, and belonging initiatives in your unit. The Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity will review proposal drafts to provide feedback in advance of submission deadlines as time and capacity permits. 

Want more information on how to complete an EOPC proposal? 

Please see the EOPC SharePoint site for resources including a Power Point slide providing an Introduction to Assessment for Co-curricular Programs. It reviews how to craft explicit program goals and outcomes (with measurement).
