Royse, Molly; Conner, Tiffani; Miller, Tamara
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v6 n1 p23-45 Jan 2006
The University of Tennessee Libraries' Diversity Committee administered a climate assessment survey to determine the readiness of the libraries for a comprehensive diversity initiative. This article discusses the design and methodology of the survey and analyzes the results. The survey served as a valuable starting point in charting a successful inclusive future for the libraries and provided the libraries with benchmarks for measuring the progress and success of its diversity programs. The survey project continues to guide the committee in its planning and contributes to other library diversity climate assessment efforts, a few of which are being reported. (Contains 14 tables and 16 notes.)
