Proposal Application Process

General Information

The President’s Commission on Cultural Diversity & Inclusion (PCCDI) is committed to supporting and facilitating programs that help create, sustain or promote a climate that fosters cultural diversity on campus and within the broader community. The President’s Commission on Cultural Diversity & Inclusion also welcomes proposals that contribute to policy developments that impact and enrich the educational experience of students.

Proposals for the President’s Commission on Cultural Diversity & Inclusion (PCCDI) are currently accepted two times each academic year – once at the beginning of the Fall term and again at the beginning of the Spring term.  A unified series of events, such as concerts or plays, which encompass multiple semesters, should be applied for during the event’s enrollment period.  In addition, proposals submitted one semester in advance are limited to one application per term and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

A schedule for the regular application periods follows:

  1. The Fall term runs from July thru December.  The deadline for proposals is September 20th at 4:00 p.m.  The PCCDI will announce the allocations following the PCCDI funding meeting in October.
  2. The Spring term runs from January thru June.  The deadline for proposals is February 20th at 4:00 p.m.  The PCCDI will announce the allocations following the PCCDI funding meeting in March. 

NOTE: Proposals received after 4:00 p.m. will not be accepted. Requests for extensions will not be honored.
