The Purpose of this Collection
The Michigan Law Library views our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as central to our mission as an educational institution. We seek to ensure that each member of our community has full opportunity to thrive in our environment. We believe that diversity is key to individual flourishing, educational excellence, and the advancement of knowledge, and we maintain a deep commitment to fostering a diverse community in which all students, staff, and faculty learn and work in an atmosphere of inclusion, respect, and belonging.
We intend the DEI Collection to educate and inform, facilitate dialog, and spark engagement to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive law school community and educational experience.
The DEI Collection is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography of diversity, equity, and inclusion topics. This collection contains resources that represent diverse perspectives on societal problems. Most of the materials may consider these issues through the lens of the United States, and we acknowledge that other perspectives exist.
This collection is organized around the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as defined by the Law School and University. These are broad, overlapping principles which include but are not limited to the following topics:
We have also highlighted certain titles in our Avern Cohn Collection. These titles represent diverse voices, stories, and issues. They are also located in Sub-2 Core and are available to checkout and take home to read.
