Diversity Committee

UT Libraries Diversity Committee Meeting Minutes March 16, 2017

Present: Thura Mack, Melony Allen, Cathy Jenkins, Regina Mays, Megan Venable



  • The workshop on intersectionality will be April 24, 1 – 3 PM in Hodges 605.
  • A call for new members will go out soon.


Regina Mays gave a summary of her and Thura’s meeting with the Dean’s Student Advisory Council on our Lunch and Learn series. A copy of her presentation is attached.


Suggestions for engagement for Lunch and Learns included communication with departmental list servs. Megan will compile a list of all campus diversity groups, and they will also get invitations to Lunch and Learns. Nora and Patrick will be contacted and ask what 2 – 3 things attendees will take away from the intersectionality workshop, and that information will be used in promotional materials.


A STEAM Lunch and Learn is being conceived in the fall.


Invite Caroline to an upcoming Diversity Committee meeting to have her discuss her use of UTK Libraries social media outlets, and how we may contribute to it efficiently.
