About Us

The Diversity and Inclusion Resource Guide developed out of a competition held annually by the Institute of Creativity and Entrepreneurship. In the fall of 2016, the ICE posed the question: “How would you create an inclusive community that represents all perspectives of a 21st-century community?”

As participants in the challenge, and in accordance with the values and mission of the library, the Communication and Marketing Department here at Falvey proposed the creation of this very guide. With the funding of the ICE and the expertise already available on our own staff, construction of the page began.

While you are visiting us now, we truly believe that construction of this resource can never be completed. The Diversity and Inclusion guide is very much a living document. We hope that as the world continues to change around us, this guide will adapt and continue to inspire conversation and curiosity.

Note:
Falvey's Topic Guides and Subject Guides usually have a librarian attached to them. We see the Diversity and Inclusion Guide, however, as an ongoing project within and around the community. For questions or comments about the guide, you can contact English and Theatre Librarian  Sarah Wingo, who has advised the Communication and Marketing Department in the course of creating the guide.
