Erum A. Syed awarded Diversity and Inclusion Innovation Grant
Erum A. Syed, Chief Administrative Officer of the department, has been awarded a $5,000 Diversity and Innovation Grant. The grants are designed to support the ideas of UC Davis students, faculty, and staff that promote and enhance diversity and inclusion at the University. Only 28% of the grant proposals submitted were selected, with preference given to those that aim to act upon, inform, or otherwise support the goals of the forthcoming UC Davis Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusion. Syed’s project is titled “Diversity Dialogue Series: The Muslim American Experience” which will consist of a series of three events in the 2017-18 academic year.
