Each spring, diversity grants are awarded to faculty that conduct research to support the development of courses with diversity content in the Niagara University curriculum. The purpose of the grant is to provide faculty with resources to enable them to design their instruction to enhance the teaching and learning of students with different backgrounds, learning styles, abilities and disabilities. Related to this main objective, the diversity grants support the development of programs, minors and majors linked to diversity issues.
Taking the previous statement in consideration, the diversity committee would like to encourage the development or enhancement of courses in any major that help build programs related to diversity.
For additional information and a grant proposal application, please contact Diane Stoelting at 716.286.8076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
