Leading by Example

We’ve made strides in increasing diversity among faculty and leadership, but we still have work to do. To ensure that women and underrepresented minorities aren’t overlooked in faculty recruiting and promotion, we’re ramping up our effort through faculty recruitment workshops and programs like ADVANCE and NextProf. Promoting diversity in STEM leadership benefits us all.


DEI Faculty Grant

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Faculty Grant is a new funding opportunity. The grant will be awarded to a U-M Engineering Faculty member interested in leading an activity to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion within the U-M Engineering departments and division. For more information pertaining to the DEI Faculty Grant, please review the Call for Faculty Proposal.
