Today's Library Issues Seminar was called "What do you mean by diversity? A Discussion."   

We discussed how the University of Minnesota has defined diversity and how that impacts the work of the Libraries' Diversity Outreach Collaborative and Diversity Outreach Librarian.

Powerpoint from today's session can be seen by clicking here.

In 2008, the University of Minnesota Office for Equity and Diversity launched a new framework to guide University offices, colleges, departments and individuals in diversity work.  This document is titled: Re-imagining Equity and Diversity: A Framework for Transforming the University of Minnesota.  This document identifies 8 priority areas for diversity.  The Diversity Outreach Collaborative and Diversity Outreach Librarian encourage all to read this document and become familiar with the 8 priority areas.  We are truly in a unique position to have a framework like this that has been adopted by the entire University of Minnesota System. 

You can see examples of a few programs that have been mapped to the priority areas on the above mentioned powerpoint from this session.

Another tool for mapping your programs or projects to the priority areas is the attached: OED Priority Areas for Library Issues Seminar.doc.  

If you have any questions about mapping please contact me at grayjl@umn.edu or call 612-624-9913.  I would be happy to work with your department on this project.
