Spring 2019 Enhancing Diversity Seminar Series
How and Why Libraries can be a Hub for Diversity on Today’s Campus
Presenters: David Carlson, Dean, University Libraries and Patrick Zinn, Director of Marketing & Communications, University Libraries
Audience Knowledge: Novice – Limited or no experience, training, and/or personal reflection discussing racism, privilege, and other social justice issues and identifying personal biases, prejudices, and identity
Program Description: This presentation explores the opportunities an academic library has in playing a role in diversity efforts on their campus. The Texas A&M University Libraries see themselves as a "home away from home" for students, providing an opportunity to create spaces where all feel welcomed with messages of inclusion and understanding. This presentation will provide specific examples of how they activated their own voice by developing a wide-range of diversity programming designed to work in tandem with the University’s efforts to develop a more inclusive campus.
