This presentation will highlight the works and initiatives of the university libraries’ first Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI), including the methodologies used to craft the libraries’ diversity plan. The goal of the libraries diversity plan is to foster an inclusive virtual and physical environment for all learners, researchers, and library staff and to proactively provide spaces, services, programs, and resources that embrace and promote the transformative power of diversity. The primary focus of the presentation is to share ideas and suggestions on how other libraries can create a unified voice/vision that may help to advance ideas, projects, and initiatives that truly support and reflect the needs of its communities and constituents. Finally, the presentation will highlight some future plans and reflect on some important lessons learned during the strategic planning process.
