The CBS DEIJ Community of Practice funded 16 proposals in varying amounts totaling more than $75,000 provided by the CBS Dean’s Office. The grants will support projects across the college that advance diversity, equity, inclusion and justice. The awards support efforts across departments and include programs and projects led by graduate and undergraduate students, faculty and staff.
