Diversity in the Curriculum Grants
Horace Mann School promotes the principle of inclusion in all aspects of school life. Faculty members may apply for a Diversity in the Curriculum Grant to incorporate topics and materials into the existing curriculum or to create new units of instruction that help students to develop a deeper understanding of human society’s divergent forms. Faculty members from all divisions and disciplines are encouraged to apply. Recipients may use the summer months to create new activities, choose new readings or materials, and formulate new curricular ideas. Because these grants are for materials and ideas that will be integrated into teaching, recipients should complete their work over the summer or by the end of the first trimester at the latest.
The Grants Committee evaluates each proposal, according to the following guidelines:
Curriculum materials for a full-year project or course that integrates concepts of diversity and inclusion: $1,500-$2,000
Curriculum or materials for medium-term projects (a single unit of study or a one-trimester course): $750-$1,000
Short-term diversity in the curriculum projects: $250-$500
