About the Program

The Center’s Valuing Open and Inclusive Conversation and Engagement (VOICE) Initiative provides up to $5,000 in funding for UC students, staff and faculty who are interested in conducting research or coordinating programs and activities that further the Center’s mission of exploring the intersection of expression, engagement and democratic learning and considering what can be done to restore trust in the value of free speech on college campuses and within society at large.
