UBC is committed to advancing equity and inclusion across the university. The Equity Enhancement Fund enables faculty, staff, and students to play an active role in this effort by providing them with up to $25,000 in funding for community-based, collaborative projects.
You are invited to submit a proposal by Feb. 28 to take part in advancing inclusive excellence and fostering an equitable and inclusive community.
Proposals should build faculty, staff, and student competencies related to issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion through community-engaged activities. Proposals should also aim to deliver observable and/or measurable benefits to the representation or experiences of historically disadvantaged groups within the UBC community.
An information session will be held on the Vancouver campus and will be live-streamed in the Okanagan on Feb. 13 to provide an opportunity to learn more about the Equity Enhancement Fund and inclusion efforts at UBC.
If you have questions regarding this fund, or equity and inclusion generally, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do you have a great idea to help make UBC a better campus? Apply for funding from the UBC Equity Enhancement Fund.
The Equity Enhancement Fund supports community-based initiatives that enhance equity, diversity, inclusion and intercultural understanding at UBC. The 2016 call for proposals is now open and applications are due by April 1, 2016.
Proposals should demonstrate benefits to the representation or experiences of historically disadvantaged groups within the UBC community.
In 2015, 19 groups received funding for the fund (14 from the Vancouver campus, and five from the Okanagan campus).
A sample of this year’s projects include:
All academic or administrative units are invited to apply for funding. Student groups as well as other faculty and staff groups are also invited to submit proposals through their respective leadership.
Applications are accepted for a broad range of funding up to a maximum of $25,000. Preference is given to proposals that demonstrate some matching financial contributions from partners and are for projects that have the potential to be self-sustaining. Separate funding is available for the Okanagan and Vancouver campus.
