     As an institutional member, all faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students at RBHS have access to the following member resources at no additional cost:

    • Weekly Monday motivator
    • Monthly core curriculum webinars
    • Monthly guest expert webinars
    • Access to multi-week courses
    • A private discussion forum for peer-mentoring & problem-solving

    In addition to the resources available to you as an institutional member, the center also offers professional development training and intensive mentoring programs. We hope to offer on-campus workshops with NCFDD in the near future.

    To claim your institutional membership, you will need to activate your personal membership account. We encourage you to take advantage of the resources available to you through the NCFDD.

    RBHS-IDEA: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Advocacy Innovation Grants

    The mission of the RBHS-IDEA innovation grants is to support action-oriented projects that promote an inclusive, diverse, and cohesive culture at RBHS and that show meaningful and measurable results. As we invest in broader institutional efforts to advance an inclusive culture at RBHS, the IDEA grants offer a way for innovative grassroots efforts to join in our larger strategy. We invite projects that encourage conversations and connections across our differences to create opportunities for belonging and to strengthen a sense of community.

    The goals of the RBHS-IDEA innovation grant program are:

    1. To fund research and scholarly activities that seek innovative approaches to diversity, equity, advocacy, and inclusion
    2. To promote the development of initiatives and programs that foster an inclusive and welcoming environment for the success of the larger RBHS community.
