Anti-racism Mini-grants, Inclusive Public Safety — Seeking Your Views

November 19, 2020

Dear Students,

Here are two important opportunities for you to get involved in ongoing anti-racism work at the University, following on President Bollinger’s call to action to address the destructiveness of racism, and of anti-Black racism specifically.

Apply for a Racial Justice Mini-Grant

University Life invites all students to apply for the Racial Justice Mini-Grant Program — monetary awards of $50-$1,500 for developing innovative ideas to address racism, particularly anti-Black racism, through education, broadening the campus conversation and strengthening our campus culture of inclusion and belonging.

If you have a great idea for an event, workshop or something else that could help advance Columbia’s commitment to antiracism, we encourage you to apply. Learn more and submit your application.

Seeking Your Insight and Ideas on Inclusive Public Safety at Columbia

Do you have ideas, experiences or feedback about public safety at Columbia that you’d like to share with the Inclusive Public Safety Working Group? What we learn from you could help develop concrete strategies for assuring inclusive safety for all who are on Columbia’s campuses.

Fill out this form to send us your suggestions, feedback and insights. We look forward to hearing from you and working together to accomplish this important goal.
