Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Clemson University Libraries seeks to best serve our community through creating a welcoming environment in which diverse ideas and perspectives come together to achieve common goals. We are committed to the practice of inclusion as it is essential to the continued success not only of Clemson University but of the library and information science profession. We embrace Clemson’s core values of integrity, honesty, and respect, and add to those the ideals of compassion, dignity, and historical awareness so that Clemson Libraries’ staff, collections, spaces, and services inform the interest, information, and enlightenment of all who we serve.

Decolonize Clemson. Decolonize Clemson (formerly Indigenizing Clemson) is a committee that was established in 2018 with the purpose of developing a basis for how Clemson connects with and recognizes local Indigenous communities, land, labor, and history. This committee consists of students, faculty, and staff across Clemson’s campus who work collaboratively to advance indigeneity through the curriculum, co-curricular engagement, and community development.
