Ryerson University promotes and supports inclusivity in the classroom. We have one of the most diverse student populations in the world and it is important to ensure that our curriculum addresses issues of diversity and inclusion. In order to help faculty and programs meet this goal, the Provost has established a multi-year fund (TDF) that will enable faculty members to develop new courses, infuse diversity and inclusion into existing courses, support conference attendance, conduct research into issues of building a diverse and inclusive curriculum, and support the development of workshops and training. The goal of this fund is to ensure that the curriculum offered in Ryerson classes and programs addresses diversity and inclusion and that Ryerson students are expected to demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of diversity in society.
The theme of this call for proposals is "Understanding Diversity," and while we encourage proposals from a variety of areas in inclusive higher education, we particularly encourage proposals that will increase the ways in which curriculum in Ryerson programs addresses diversity and inclusion and the ways in which Ryerson students are encouraged to demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of our society and to be effective participants in our diverse and globalized world.
The funding range for this year’s TDF will be restricted to projects of $1,000-$5,000. The total funds available for this University competition are $35,000.
Recognizing that the theme of reaching all students can be broad and varied, we have identified various approaches that may fit well within the guidelines of this TDF call for proposals. However, we would like to stress that submissions are not restricted to these approaches and that these items are here to provide guidance to those who wish to submit proposals:
