The Libraries Organizational Development Committee is responsible for infusing the University of Arkansas’ diversity mission into the infrastructure of the Libraries' staff, collections, services, physical space, and social and professional climate. The committee provides diversity-related training to library faculty and staff, coordinates diversity-related programs with the Division of Student Affairs, contributes to the implementation of the Libraries’ Strategic Goals, and advances the university’s Diversity Plan.


Our role is to provide the highest quality educational experience possible for our students, our staff, and our faculty. We aim to improve that process through the provision of quality programming, the retention and development of competent and qualified staff, the development of our collections, and the equitable provision of access to these services. Our work is designed to produce a safe and secure environment which will enhance the social, mental, and physical well-being of the entire university community. Through our efforts, the Organizational Development Committee performs an essential role in the intellectual and professional development of the university’s students, and their preparation for democratic participation in an increasingly global society.
