FSU Anti-Racism Funds – Call for Proposals


Dear FSU Members,

As part of the contract negotiated by the FSU and UMB administration, the university agreed to establish a “$25,000 pool of funding in each year [of the contract that] shall be allocated to and distributed by the Provost’s office in consultation with the FSU to support anti-racism activities for faculty and librarians.” 

With this is mind, the FSU – in consultation with the Provost’s office -- is calling for proposals from faculty and librarians to support anti-racism activities at UMass Boston.  Please submit a 1-page proposal (plus a short budget) along with a CV by June 3rd to; group proposals are encouraged, especially from members of groups historically underrepresented in U.S. universities. The proposals will be evaluated by an FSU committee before the Provost’s office makes a final decision.   We encourage faculty/librarians to think about anti-racism initiatives in broad and innovative ways – with the idea that proposed events, trainings, education, talks, research, etc. will take place throughout the next academic year but must be completed (and money spent) by June 30th, 2023.
