Funding from EOPC is intended to provide seed money for innovative pilot programs and existing initiatives that create and support a climate of equity throughout Penn State.

The deadline to submit proposals for summer 2019 programs is Dec. 17, 2018, and for the 2019-20 academic year, Jan. 22, 2019.
