Deadlines approach for EOPC proposals

Penn State faculty and staff are invited to submit funding proposals to the Equal Opportunity Planning Committee (EOPC) to advance the University’s diversity goals as stated in Penn State’s diversity strategic plan, "A Framework to Foster Diversity at Penn State: 2004-09."

The proposal deadline for summer 2009 programs is Dec. 12, and, for academic year 2009-10 programs, Jan. 16. Funding can be obtained for programs that address one of the seven challenges identified in the framework. The framework is available at online. Proposals that address Challenge Five, “Developing a Curriculum That Fosters Intercultural and International Competencies,” are especially encouraged.

If you would like further information on developing EOPC proposals, please contact Mike Blanco at or (814) 863-7890, or visit the EOPC website at online.
