Current Issues Coffee Club: Reflections on Meaningful Change


The Diversity Outreach Collaborative invites you to the next Current Issues Coffee Club:

Tuesday, December 14, 3:30-4:30 Upson Room Walter Library Coffee and treats provided from Franklin Street Bakery

The University of Minnesota Libraries participated in a self reflective study conducted by the University of Minnesota Institute for Diversity, Equity and Advocacy (IDEA). The self study group composed of faculty and staff commissioned through an application process in the Spring of 2009 by Associate Vice Provost Louis Mendoze, Director of IDEA, which was then still in its formative state. IDEA's goal is to promote and support scholars from the University of Minnesota as they collaborate in innovative and groundbreaking ways across disciplines, departments, colleges, campuses, and with local communities.

This group analyzed issues related to leadership, campus climate, the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty, staff and students, the uses and reliability of data collection and metrics on diversity, accountability and evaluation measures, and teaching, research and support services that advance diversity and equity at the University of Minnesota.

The end result was a document titled ''Equity and Diversity at the University of Minnesota: Reflections on Meaningful Change.

Please join the Diversity Outreach Collaborative in discussing this document.
