The Tri-Psychology Programs—Institute of Child Development, Psychology, and Educational Psychology—at the University of Minnesota are deeply committed to supporting underrepresented students in the psychological sciences. Together, we strive to create welcoming, affirming, and inclusive spaces and seek to foster respectful exchanges of ideas that allow us to embrace the power of diversity of perspectives and backgrounds to enrich us all.
Toward this end, we invite applications for the 2016-17 Tri-Psych Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Student Fund. The goal of this award is to build community and facilitate cross-departmental collaborations among tri-psych students from traditionally underrepresented groups. For this award, underrepresentation is defined as groups who have been traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education through their race, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, disability, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status.
We seek innovative proposals that build community for underrepresented students, provide opportunities to encourage and support your fellow students, and build stronger collaborations across departments.
