Celebrating Diversity Month

Every September we celebrate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) at the University of Arkansas with a monthlong slate of events that help us incorporate more inclusive practices throughout the school year. 

Here's how you can get involved and celebrate our 2021 DEI month!

U of A students, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate Appreciate Diversity Month, observed Aug. 15 through Sept. 15, by using Libraries resources to familiarize themselves with local cultures. 

Several Libraries research guides compile books, articles, newspapers, oral histories, archival materials and more to facilitate understanding of the Northwest Arkansas community.
