A record seventeen iSchool master's students were named 2020-2021 Spectrum Scholars by the American Library Association (ALA) Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services. In our "Spectrum Scholar Spotlight" series, we highlight the School's scholars. (Pictured: Kyra Lee)
A welcoming environment for everyone
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion creates an environment of respectful and thoughtful interactions among members of the iSchool and campus family. Here, you'll find a culture where diversity of thought, personal integrity, and inclusive excellence prepares leaders for an increasingly global and digital society. It's a home where the emotional and intellectual well-being of the full community is supported.
How do we foster diversity and inclusion?
- We encourage leadership, policies, and practices that are inclusive.
- We integrate diverse and critical perspectives into the curriculum and research.
- We actively recruit and retain traditionally underrepresented groups of students, faculty, and staff.
- We create an environment where difference is valued and conflict is managed with care.
