An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

The Hamilton College Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we are and do. We strive to embrace our differences, and foster a culture of inclusion that supports our work on campus and beyond. We value inclusion as a core strength and an essential element of our work.   

The LITS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force was charged with implementing a three-part strategy: building a diverse team, arranging professional development opportunities for our staff, and providing diverse and inclusive services and resources.

DEI Hiring Toolkit

Our goal is to support Hamilton’s commitment to inclusive excellence. This toolkit is intended to be one of many resources to consult to increase outreach efforts and build an inclusive applicant pool.

Awareness Programs

Continued learning, both inside and outside a formal training program, is important for all members of LITS to help create a more inclusive and welcoming environment.

Continuing Efforts

LITS actively supports and continues to enhance the advancement and celebration of DEI through our diverse collections, inclusive programming, responsive services offered, and other means.
