Campus Climate Micro-grants

As part of our ongoing commitment to fostering an inclusive and welcoming campus environment at the University of Minnesota, we are pleased to announce the return of the Office for Equity and Diversity’s Campus Climate Micro-Grants program. Aligned with the theme of 'Engage. Energize. Empower' from the Equity and Diversity Breakfast, these grants offer opportunities for positive change. 

The Campus Climate Micro-Grants program is made possible through the generous support of the Office of the President for the current academic year, demonstrating our collective commitment to address the Cambridge Hill Partners Systemwide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report’s recommendations and take meaningful action to make our University more inclusive and welcoming.

What Are U of M Campus Climate Micro-Grants?

U of M Campus Climate Micro-Grants offer an opportunity for individuals and groups within the University of Minnesota community to secure funding for new or existing projects that actively contribute to enhancing our campus climate. These grants are dedicated to creating a university environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just values but lived experiences.
