Who We Are
From the Dean
Know the Libraries
Acknowledging that these issues are ever-evolving and that success will be achieved only when connecting this work to broader institutional, civic, and societal constituencies, the council may:
Membership: the group will consist of 8-12 individuals, representing the various Libraries functional units across university employment classifications. To the degree possible, members selected will embody a range of characteristics and perspectives (e.g. race/ethnicity, gender, ability, sexual orientation, religious affiliation) and bring deep, broad, and complementary knowledge, interests, and experience to the group. Student representation will be considered.
Leadership: the work of the committee will be facilitated by the associate dean for organizational development, inclusion, and diversity. A chair and vice-chair and secretary will be selected from within the assembled committee. The chair will serve in the role for one year from appointment. The vice-chair will serve one year in that capacity and will transition into the role of chair for one year.
Terms of committee appointment: Members of the committee will serve one initial two-year term, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. The initial group may consist of appointments in shorter and/or longer durations to ensure mobility and flexibility in group membership, consistency in membership from year to year, and the opportunity for new voices to commit and continue the work.
