Diversity, Equity and Advocacy Experts

The goal of this database is to offer experts in equity, diversity, and advocacy a chance to network and to explore potential research collaborators grant opportunities. We invite UM faculty, graduate students, and staff, as well as community-based researchers to join the database and identify those with whom you have common interests. If you attended one of the exploratory sessions on the formation of the Institute in 2008-09, a profile has been created for you. Please review and edit for accuracy.


IDEA's goal is to facilitate community building and to promote research that addresses pressing social issues. We are exploring ways to support research clusters among those with similar interests. Look on IDEA's home page  for funding opportunities for short-term projects or seed-funding for externally funded efforts.
