Library Diversity Council
The Library Diversity Council recognizes diversity as the broad range of experiences and backgrounds our community brings together to create a rich learning environment. We support Adelphi University’s vision of celebrating individuality while creating an inclusive community with equitable access to resources.
Our mission is to empower all Adelphi Library users to learn and grow together in a welcoming and safe climate. We seek to do so through our library spaces, resources, services, and the Library community.
- Lead the exploration of opportunities for area specific curriculum enhancements in fostering social justice and diminishing racism and bias.
- Collaborate with faculty and academic departments to decolonize the curriculum by procuring, curating, and integrating DEI resources.
- Create curriculum design aids for teaching faculty that support best teaching and learning practices using information sources.
- Create welcoming Library spaces by adding artwork and artifacts that reflect student perspectives of inclusivity, diversity, and social justice.
Library Diversity Council Meetings occur every other Wednesday from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm via Zoom.
New members, including students, are always encouraged to volunteer for the Library Diversity Council or attend the meetings. Please contact Kimberly Mullins if you are interested.
