  • Recruit and retain a diverse library staff.
  • Train and develop staff in cultural competency.
  • Promote understanding of implicit bias, and work to shape our organization to limit it.
  • Intentionally find ways to be more inclusive. 
  • Promote equity and accessibility in collections, and the allocation of resources to support DEI initiatives in all areas of Fondren Library.
