The Louisville-based James Graham Brown Foundation granted $200,000 to Spalding University, according to a news release from the school.
Spalding University, a private nonprofit college, will use the grant to deepen its justice, equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives. Specifically, it will support Spalding’s newly created Office of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. It will also support the development of a comprehensive campus plan for diversity and inclusion, the release states.
To start, Spalding University will hire a firm to conduct an independent campus climate survey to identify gaps in the school’s justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, or JEDI, efforts. That will be the basis for the campus plan. Read more in Business First.
