Diversity Transformation Award – Program Initiatives
The Diversity Transformation Award (DTA) program is a new initiative funded by the Office of the Provost, with the goals of enhancing campus diversity by increasing the enrollment and success of students from underrepresented minority populations, increasing the representation of underrepresented minorities within the faculty ranks, and leveraging the research talent on campus to create a nationally recognized center of activity in studying factors affecting inclusiveness and success of underrepresented minority (URM) students and faculty.
