Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: General Information

A collaborative effort between the University of Iowa Libraries and the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Welcome to the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Guide!

We are excited to collaborate and partner with the University of Iowa Libraries to provide the following resource and connection hub. Whether you are new to the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion or an experienced social justice activist looking for a deeper dive, we invite you to explore the contents of this guide.

In this guide, you will have the option to browse our curated collection of materials as well as find specific resources for your questions, tasks, and responsibilities. We acknowledge that there are many different perspectives and resources about diversity, equity, and inclusion—we offer the following suggestions not as a definitive list but as jumping off points for further reading, study, and dialogue. We encourage all visitors, regardless of experience level, to review the institutional definitions below as well as the definitions included on each page. By reviewing a core set of definitions, we can reinforce what we know, remind ourselves of what we've forgotten, and ultimately communicate more effectively with each other.


If you are struggling with navigating through this guide, please contact Inclusive Education and Strategic Initiatives at for assistance. 

We have varying levels of control over the resources listed; we will do our best to provide accessible versions of outside content that was not created by the University of Iowa.


If you have any questions, comments, resource recommendations, or general feedback, please visit the feedback tab and fill out the form.
