In October 2017, The Florida State University Libraries established its first ever Diversity and Inclusion Committee with a charge to develop a shared understanding of diversity and inclusion among library employees and patrons. This is the result of many years of hard work by the Libraries’ leadership and support from campus administration and library employees.
This presentation will provide a platform for sharing my, and others', experiences creating diversity committees from inception to implementation. The aim is to create a space where participants can share their thoughts about identifying and providing services to diverse communities on college and university campuses.
