Scholarship confirms that inclusive practices lead to higher quality research and greater innovation. The Office of the Dean for Research (DFR) is developing several initiatives to support and grow a more inclusive research, innovation, and entrepreneurship ecosystem at Princeton University and beyond, including creating new innovation funds aimed at broadening participation in academic research and innovation. DFR will also launch a new initiative to help diversify the entrepreneurial workforce.

DEI Resources for Securing Funding

Many calls for proposals encourage or require plans for promoting equity and inclusion as an intrinsic element to advancing scientific excellence in the research and/or training plan. Moreover, reviewers and program managers have high expectations for these plans, in that they should be evidence-based, well-reasoned, and adequately resourced.

Reach out to the Research Development Team in the Office of the Dean for Research for support in brainstorming and creating a strong diversity, equity, and inclusion plan for your next proposal.
