Library Diversity Committee

Welcome

This guide is a resource created by The Washington University Libraries’ Diversity Committee. This supports the University's values with respect to diversity and is dedicated to creating a more inclusive, welcoming, and respectful organizational culture that appreciates and supports individual differences.

The Committee hopes to provide leadership in reinforcing a broad interpretation of diversity by providing resources and programs that expand knowledge and experiences of diversity for the library staff and the wider university community.

 

"Diversity is in constant motion at Washington University in St. Louis in myriad ways."
