This webpage covers all the different topics of initiatives. Initiatives work at all levels - helping just one person such as providing funding or grants for travel, or helping a whole group of people by changing university wide policies. The goal of all of these initiatives is to create a stronger and happier workforce. To help breakdown the scope of these initiatives, we have grouped them by levels.
