The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council (DivE-In) will strengthen relationships, skills, and analysis to promote constructive change within DUL. The Council will propose library-wide goals, devise strategies, make recommendations, and support education and training initiatives that address diversity, equity, and inclusion issues. Acknowledging that these issues are ever-evolving and that DUL are part of a much larger community, the Council will evaluate the Libraries’ strengths and challenges in these areas with the intention to further enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion. To be successful, this work must be collaborative and engage many different aspects and groups within DUL, demonstrating transparency. Recognizing that diversity initiatives must be embedded within the culture and practices of the Libraries to be truly transformational, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council will work in concert with the Executive Group, Library Human Resources, and appropriate departments and committees to meet its goals.

Council members are focusing on diversity, equity, inclusion, and access through our roles on various library strategic planning committees. DivE-In will restart in 2024.
