Igniting Diversity: Actionable Methods and Ideas for Advancing Diversity in LIS Education in the US
Lee, Shari A.; Chancellor, Renate; Chu, Clara M.; Rodriguez-Mori, Howard; Roy, Loriene
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v56 suppl 1 pS47-S60 2015
The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) appointed a five-member Taskforce in 2011 to pursue the development of an ALISE Statement on Diversity. Two years later, the ALISE membership voted unanimously to adopt the statement. In an effort to move the statement from mere words on paper, the Taskforce provided actionable models and ideas in an "ignite" session on diversity. In this collaborative piece, four members of the ignite diversity panel share their ideas, experiences, and methods for advancing diversity in the classroom and beyond. Professors Renate Chancellor, Clara Chu, Howard Rodriguez-Mori, and Loriene Roy provide ideas and real world examples that can be readily implemented in the classroom, in research, and at the institutional level. While the United States provides the context for these discussions, many of these methods and ideas are readily adaptable to countries across the globe.
