Call for Diversity Publications
Our goal in the Office of Institutional Diversity is to ensure that diversity is an integral part of the Ball State University identity and faculty scholarship and creative works are one way we demonstrate our commitment to this value.

Once again we will recognize and celebrate faculty who have published diversity-related scholarship, completed diversity-themed creative projects or created a new diversity-related course in the past calendar year January 2017-December 2017 at our annual luncheon. These efforts can be in the areas of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/gender expression, physical or mental disability, national origin, ancestry or age.

Please include the appropriate citation or description for your diversity-related work to oid@bsu.edu by 5 pm March 22, 2018
. A celebratory luncheon will be held to honor those who have made contributions in these areas on April 10, 2018.

Research project results should be worthy of submission for publication in refereed journals and/or presentation at academic conferences and could contribute to external funding opportunities. The project period for this funding is May 15, 2018- May 15, 2019. Learn more.
