Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at the Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library

This guide provides diversity resources and services to students, faculty, and library staff.


Welcome to the research guide on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

This guide is designed to help students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the University of Dallas access resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion through the Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library. 

The University of Dallas is committed to protecting the dignity of every human person and upholding the Catholic Church's teaching that every person is made in God's image. 

Creating an environment that values and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for every human person, requires action and engagement. The Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library actively supports and continues to enhance the advancement and celebration of human dignity for all through our diverse collections, inclusive programming, responsive services offered, and other means.

It is our intent that this guide is a tool to increase one's knowledge, understanding, and literacy on DEI to foster an inclusive climate and support the advancement of this effort at UD and beyond.
