Every year, the DPD Program hosts and co-sponsors events that create opportunities for OSU community members to engage with multidisciplinary scholarship on difference, power, and discrimination; critical pedagogies; and curriculum transformation. If you are planning an on-campus event that aligns with the programmatic goals of DPD, a modest amount of DPD funding may be available to support your event.


All campus event organizers are welcome to apply for funds. Funding is dependent on available program resources.

To Apply:

Submit a letter of request (no more than 1 page) to Nana Osei-Kofi at least 8 weeks before the event date, that:

  • lists the event organizers
  • provides a description of the event or program (location, date, etc.)
  • indicates the prospective audience and attendance
  • describes the programmatic purpose
  • includes an estimated budget, the amount requested, and if possible, the specific expense for which requested funds will be used

Applicants will receive a reply once the request has been received, and notification of status will be sent within one week (excluding campus holidays). If funded, DPD is to be identified as a co-sponsor on all marketing materials.
