Office for Equity and Diversity Sponsorship Application

The Office for Equity and Diversity (OED) has limited funds available to help support programming and initiatives related to equity and diversity issues at the University of Minnesota. U of M-affiliated departments, units and student groups are invited to submit requests for such support. Requests can be for financial support, participation, promotional/marketing assistance or other in-kind contributions.

Co-sponsorship requests will be reviewed as they are received. Requests for retroactive funding will not be considered.

All publicity for co-sponsored events must mention the assistance of OED and should include the OED logo when possible. Copies of flyers, announcements, etc. must be supplied to OED.

Co-sponsorship requests will be evaluated based on the consistency of the proposed project or program with OED  mission, vision and values.
