The Diversity Council consists of faculty and staff appointed by the College President in Fall 2012 to provide recommendations on how to allocate a fund of money made available by the District for cultural diversity activities. The council will meet approximately monthly throughout the Fall and Spring semesters as needed to review proposals and respond to issues related to approved activities.
PROPOSALS FOR 2013-2014:
The Diversity Council (DC) has approximately $3,000 to allocate in 2013-2014. Awards to any group or individual will not exceed $500. Funds for Fall 2013 events have already been allocated. Individuals and groups can combine DC funds with other funding sources (e.g. grants, donations, funds raised through club activities, etc.)
PROPOSALS FOR CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS TO BE HELD DURING THE FALL 2013 SEMESTER
are due to Celena Alcala by Thursday, May 2 at 4:00pm. Our goal is to announce which proposals will be funded from this group by May 13, 2013.
PROPOSALS FOR CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS TO BE HELD DURING THE SPRING 2014 SEMESTER
are due to Celena Alcala by September 16, 2013 at 4:00pm October 25, 2013 at 4:00pm. Our goal is to announce which proposals will be funded from this group by October 14, 2013 November 4, 2013.
Even if a planned celebration does not require a DC fund allocation because there are no out-of-pocket expenses or you have another source of funds, the council asks that you submit a proposal. In this way, we can ensure that the PR Office is aware of the event for promotion purposes; that protocols are followed for special guests; that Facilities is available for any special needs; etc.
PROPOSALS MUST BE SUBMITTED ON THE DIVERSITY COUNCIL PROPOSAL FORM.
