EOPC supports and advances the University’s strategic plan (see, “Fostering and Embracing a Diverse World” at: http://strategicplan.psu.edu/foundations/fostering-and-embracing-a-diverse-world/) 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? Training sessions will be held to help staff and faculty craft successful proposals. In our EOPC Proposal Writing Workshops, participants will learn about EOPC program funding, proposal components, and can ask questions about the proposal submission process. Our Introduction to Assessment for Co-curricular Programs Workshop reviews how to craft explicit program goals and outcomes (with measurement). We will distribute resources and archive guidelines in a Box folder for future access. These trainings will be available via Zoom (and will be recorded).
