The Tisch Coalition

The Tisch Coalition is a group of undergraduate and graduate student representatives from each department across the school. The group supports student projects focused on inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and accessibility (IDBEA) values, and promotes cross-collaboration and community among different departments and affinity groups. 

The Tisch Coalition also hosts an annual grant funding program!


Established in 2020 when TSOA assessed and reaffirmed 15 Commitments to IDBEA, this group was developed as the umbrella council for specific school-wide and departmental groups. The group meets to share progress and concerns, collaborate to productively move efforts forward, and advocate for change. 


Representatives are asked to:

  • Attend 2 meetings a semester
  • Contribute feedback on IDBEA projects and programs being developed school-wide through the Office of Diversity
  • Connect with students to share information about IDBEA efforts and to gather concerns or challenges that need to be assessed
  • Connect with departmental contact (chair or assigned administrator) to share updates from the group
  • Spread the word on and/or apply for the IDBEA grants
