Funding Available for Programs Addressing Bias and Bigotry

Administrative and academic units at UC Davis are encouraged to submit proposals for the use of one-time funds set aside to combat bias, bigotry and discrimination, including antisemitism, Islamophobia and more. The funding, of which $565,000 remains to be allocated, is from the UC Office of the President.

UC Davis will receive $700,000 in funding, and has proposed spending $135,000 on two programs related to emergency mental health and trauma support.

Proposals, which must be limited to $100,000 each, are due Feb. 8. Funds must be spent by June 30, 2025.

They can fall under the following categories:

  • Mental Health and Trauma Support “to provide emergency mental health and trauma support for students, faculty and staff.”
  • Educational Programming “to develop educational initiatives focused on understanding and addressing bias and bigotry.”
  • Training and Professional Development “to equip UC leaders, staff and faculty with essential knowledge and skills.”

More information is available on the Finance and Business website.
