Thank you for raising this important question.
First, as part of our charge to preserve the College's history, LITS is capturing the postings from around the campus and online. They will become a part of the College's record and story. Future generations will be able to learn from these voices.
Second, and just as importantly, it has been important for us in LITS to take a moment to remember, and appreciate, and reflect on the complexities of living and working in a diverse world and to renew our commitment to finding ways to redress inequities. Many staff members have been active in intergroup dialog work and several are trained facilitators, others have done bystander training, and all staff have completed Title IX training. It is also an opportunity to renew our commitment to express our appreciation for the complexities and our commitment in the way we engage with our patrons and users, run the spaces entrusted to us, work together as staff, and select the technology and information resources for the Campus. We have important work to do.
