Hosted by the College of Letters and Sciences, the Campus Diversity Forum is an annual event that highlights the importance of diversity on campus and around the world. The theme this year is Diversity, Justice, and the Environment. The forum should “foster opportunities for cross-pollination of ideas among faculty, staff, and students” and allow us to examine the “environmental impact of materials sourcing, overconsumption, human population explosion, and climate change on the most vulnerable human communities among us.”

Andersen Library can help if you’d like to learn more about these topics. Search Library databases for articles and books, such as these: Cultivating Food Justice: Race, Class, and Sustainability, (3rd-floor Main Collection, HD9005 .C88 2011), Defending Mother Earth: Native American Perspectives on Environmental Justice (3rd-floor Main Collection, E98.S67 D44 1996), Native Americans and Energy Development (3rd-floor Main Collection, E98 .E2 N37 1984), and Facing Catastrophe: Environmental Action for a Post-Katrina World (online via ebrary). Please ask a librarian (email, chat, phone 262.472.1032, or visit the Reference Desk) for assistance with finding additional materials.
