Cultural competency on campus: Applying ACRL’s Diversity Standards
MetadataShow full item record
The ACRL Diversity Committee released the "Diversity Standards: Cultural Competency for Academic Libraries" in 2012. With strong support from our administration and clear guidelines from the standards, the University of Washington (UW)-Bothell and Cascadia Community College Campus Library Diversity Team formed in the autumn of 2012, concerned with forging authentic connections based on shared values and experiences among team members, library staff, and our community as a whole. This article describes our consensus-centered model, the design process and content of our trainings, our assessment philosophy and methods, and our relationship-building focus on campus.
