Equity and Social Disparity in the Human Condition
Advancing the Human Condition Symposia Grants
The Equity and Social Disparity in the Human Condition Destination Area (ESDHC DA) is offering grants of up to $10,000 to support short conference, symposia, or forums that take a transdisciplinary approach to compelling topics of our time. Initiatives selected to co-brand as an Advancing the Human Condition program are ones that premise equity as a driving force of its deliberations.
ESDHC Core Areas
The activities of the SGA will focus on four key areas:
- Curriculum Development and integration for minors, majors, and general education core areas to equip Virginia tech students to serve and succeed in diverse settings
- Development of collaborations with colleges, Destination Areas (DAs), and other SGAs to make engagement with difference an integral part of scholarship and teaching throughout the university, including key investments in expertise related to the human condition
- Scholarship on social disparities and difference in the human condition, aiming to build on university strengths in the areas of Health and the Environment, Identities and Culture, and Institutions, Organizations, and Policy (e.g., education, political and policy systems, businesses, and markets)
- Outreach connecting Virginia Tech expertise to issues of equity and diversity regionally, nationally, and globally.
