Committee for the Promotion of Diversity & Inclusion

The Committee for the Promotion of Diversity and Inclusion's mission is to develop, coordinate and support events, programs, resources, and communications that create an inclusive and equitable environment in which MIT Libraries staff are valued and empowered to effect positive change by actively pursuing a social justice agenda within the Libraries and the communities we serve.

CPDI is committed to embedding diversity, inclusion and social justice throughout the organization’s practices, policies, services, and culture by partnering with staff, students and faculty to advocate for broader adoption and implementation of these goals.


CPDI will also act in an advisory and support role for the Libraries leadership as well as groups and individuals within the MIT community and beyond that are involved in or wish to engage in DISJ work.
