Workload Equity: DEAP Call for Proposals due November 15th

Oct 9, 2023

By: Alison StaudingerDirector of Faculty Development & Career Advancement, Faculty Affairs 

Are you inspired by the work of the Workload Equity Committee? Have you been charged by your college or school’s leadership with developing policies and practices around workload equity? Are you recognizing that the way that faculty labor is distributed, taken-up, and rewarded is unfair for historically marginalized faculty—especially women faculty of color?

Apply to join the third cohort of Department Equity Action Plan (DEAP) teams and dive deeply into this work.

Preview the application here. 

DEAP teams range in size depending on department, program, or unit, but 3–6 faculty members work well. If you have questions about assembling a team, contact

Each DEAP will commit to attend:  

  • One 1.5 day retreat in the Denver metro area or on campus (June 2024)
  • Four all-cohort workshops (4–6 hours total)
  • Two working sessions (2–4 hours total)
  • One capstone celebration (1 hour, January 2024)
  • DEAP team meetings and consultations as appropriate


  • Administer department workload survey (January 2024)
  • Draft dashboard instrument (June 2024)
  • Submit department equity action plan (December 2024)
  • Present final poster of results (January 2025)

Each team will have $5000 to support the project (e.g., data analysis, staff support, professional development, or stipends for summer work.)
