Faculty Minority Affairs Committee (FMAC) Request for Funding Guidelines
As a standing committee of Faculty Assembly, each fiscal year FMAC is allocated funding to help achieve FMAC goals of recruitment, retention, and support of minority faculty. A small portion of this money will be used to fund campus activities that help promote issues of diversity and inclusiveness for faculty. In particular, we are especially interested in funding campus activities that promote diversity and inclusiveness in research, community engagement, and teaching. Funding is limited to UCCS faculty, staff and students. The individual proposing the event is responsible for completing ALL necessary paperwork related to the event, project, or visitor. FMAC support resulting from the proposal, if granted, is strictly financial unless otherwise agreed upon. Funds will be forfeited if the proposer does not effectively follow university protocol regarding their event. Finally, if funds are awarded FMAC should be listed /acknowledged as an official sponsor for the event in announcements/fliers. If appropriate, FMAC has a relatively small banner that could be displayed at the event.
Submit a one to two page proposal to the FMAC chair highlighting how the campus activity will promote issues of diversity and inclusiveness for faculty.
Funding amount can range from $1 to $500 dollars.
In the proposal include a budget and identify other sources of potential funding. If other sources of funding have been secured, please describe those as well.
Indicate how much funding is requested from FMAC and explain how specifically these monies will be used.
Proposal can be submitted anytime during the academic year.
Upon submission of the proposal on the FMAC website, the proposal will be automatically emailed to FMAC chair.
Present proposal to the FMAC committee. FMAC meets the first Friday of each month.
FMAC will review the proposal after the presentation and members attending the meeting will decide whether or not to fund the proposal.
If a proposal is submitted by a member of FMAC, they will be asked to step out of the meeting during the decision making process.
FMAC chair will notify status of funding to the author of proposal via email after the FMAC meeting.
