Diversity at Our School

The University of Kentucky is committed to creating a diverse, multicultural community of scholars and learners. It strives to be a model, for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, of a truly diverse society that celebrates human differences, promotes fairness and equity in policies and practices, and upholds basic principles of social justice. It is within this framework that the School of Information Science has developed a dedicated and on-going program to make diversity central to its curriculum, activities and staffing. It also is committed to educating its students about the value of diversity to them, the university, and greater society; and through this plan, the school works toward these goals.

As of 8/24/2012, UK SIS has convened its own Diversity Committee to help work toward these goals.

Current Diversity Committee Members (SIS):

Soohyung Joo

Daniela DiGiacomo

Jessalyn Vallade
