The Niagara University Diversity Committee is pleased to announce that applications for the 2016 Focus on Diversity Grants and Universal Design of Instruction (UDI) Grants are now available.

The main objective of the Focus on Diversity Grants is to support the inclusion of new diversity content in or enhance the diversity content of a class (across the curriculum); or the initiation and promotion of any diversity-focused activities/dialog outside of the classroom through various types of programming (presentations, guest speakers, faculty/student panels, etc.) that fosters intellectual development, expanded cultural awareness, and understanding.

The main objective of the Universal Design of Instruction (UDI) Grants is to provide faculty with resources to enable them to design their instruction using the principles of UDI to enhance the teaching and learning of students with different backgrounds, learning styles, abilities, and disabilities.
