The Vice President's Grant Fund
About the Grant Fund
The Committee for Community and Diversity (CCD) is a Presidential college-wide committee created as an outgrowth of the Diversity Task Force's work in 1999. The CCD is a non-policy making committee that includes students, staff, faculty, administration, and the Office of Access and Services for Individuals with Disabilities. The committee's purpose is to improve the academic, professional and social climate at Teachers College (TC). It is doing so by implementing the recommendations of the 1999 Diversity Task Force; supporting and encouraging community activities and development; and sponsoring the Vice President's Grant Fund to support financially diversity/community related projects and student research.
The Grant Fund provides funding for two different diversity and/or community grants: The Vice President's Diversity and Community Initiatives Grant (DCI) and The Vice President's Grant for Student Research in Diversity (SRD). Together these two grants provide much needed funding to encourage groups and individuals to become active leaders and participants in the creation of a meaningful and positive shared experience for all members of the TC community. Each year, the Committee for Community and Diversity is pleased to announce the recipients of awards sponsored by The Vice President's Community and Diversity Grant Fund: the DCI Grant in the fall and the SRD Grant in the spring.
The CCD is chaired by Janice S. Robinson, Esq., Vice President for Diversity and Community Affairs, and an Associate Professor of Higher Education.
