Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice Research Program

March 30, 12 pm and March 31, 2021, 4 pm Central

Answers to questions asked during the Q&A portion of the sessions are now reflected on the Research Program FAQ page. If you have additional questions after reviewing the video, please email C2ARFP@illinois.edu.

Please join us for an information session about the inaugural request for proposals for the Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice Research Program. Recognizing the critical need for universities across our nation to prioritize research focused on systemic racial inequities and injustices that exist not only in our communities but in higher education itself, the Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice Research Program will provide support for academic research and the expansion of community-based knowledge that advances the understanding of systemic racism and generationally embedded racial disparity. 

During these sessions, you will be able to learn more about the full RFP, the goals of the program, and hear about what a successful application might look like. This request for proposals includes funding tracks that are open to both to University of Illinois researchers as well as members of the wider university and Champaign County communities. Please register to receive a link to the Zoom webinar session of your choice.

Read the Request for Proposals.
