DIRECTO is a graduate student-led organization that was initially conceived in 2017 by members of the Program for Instructional Excellence (PIE), The Fellows Society, and Dr. Lisa Liseno.
These founding members submitted an application for the FSU President’s Diversity and Inclusion Mini-Grant Program in support of a Book Club. DIRECTO was awarded a mini-grant in support of the book club. The founding members expanded the vision and fundraising in support of three signature events:
The Annual Fall University-Wide Symposium on Diversity & Inclusion in Research & Teaching, a Book Club, and the Spring Conversation Series.
