Many libraries have been focusing on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts, and our academic library has made it the focus of collaborations with the Multicultural Inclusion Center. This session will discuss different ways academic libraries can support campus diversity efforts, and ways to provide inclusive experiences for students. Learn about this academic library's experiences with this collaboration and related programming, along with additional DEI ideas that have not been implemented yet.

Learning objectives:
Define and describe the various issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education.
Harness the power of diversity as a source for creativity, innovation, and productive collaboration.
Demonstrate professionalism by working inclusively and co-creating an environment where diverse perspectives are considered to collaboratively make progress toward common goals.
