EOPC supports and advances the University’s strategic plan (see, “Advancing Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity at: https://strategicplan.psu.edu/plan/foundations/inclusion-equity-diversity/) with investments in your programs and ideas. 

We encourage you to consider submitting an EOPC proposal to get support for diversity, equity, and inclusion 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. The link to the proposal form, deadlines, resources, and information are available at the EOPC website: http://equity.psu.edu/eopc/overview 

Want more information on how to complete an EOPC proposal or how to develop an assessment for your EOPC proposal? EOPC offers two workshops: EOPC Proposal Writing Workshop and the Introduction to Assessment for the Co-curricular Programs Workshop. These workshops are intended to help staff and faculty craft successful proposals. In the EOPC Proposal Writing Workshops, participants will learn about EOPC program funding, proposal components, the proposal review process, and are encouraged to ask questions about the proposal submission process. The Introduction to Assessment for Co-curricular Programs Workshop reviews how to craft explicit program goals and outcomes (with measurement).  

Recordings of the workshops and the slides from each workshop are available via the EOPC resources Box folder.
