The University Libraries affirm diversity and inclusive excellence to be vitally integral to our mission and vision, as described in our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusive Excellence. We join with students, campus partners, and administrators in continuously working towards greater equity, inclusion, and diversity (EDI) at CU Boulder.

Knowing this will be ongoing and collective work, in alignment with the campus-wide Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan, we take a strategic and systematic approach to embedding EDI into all that we do. Our Dean's Advisory Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion guides many of our efforts and ensures our alignment with campus goals.

Each member of our community is encouraged to actively participate in efforts within and outside the Libraries. One such effort resulted in this online dashboard to share our equity, diversity and inclusion work with the campus community and beyond. Organized around the “Five goals for building a more inclusive campus community”, this dashboard presents pending, ongoing and completed action items below.
