Diversity Week at UCF Libraries

One of the fantastic things about UCF is the wide range of cultures and ethnicities of our students, staff, and faculty. We come from all over. We’re just as proud of where we are from as we are of where we are now and where we will be heading in future. Diversity Week, an Office of Diversity and Inclusion initiative, is the way we celebrate this.

Between October 15 – 19, UCF will celebrate our diverse community and provide opportunities to explore topics across the broad range of human identity, experience, and interaction. Diversity Week activities are intended to stimulate our campus and move us to a more inclusive culture. The theme for 2018 is A New Day Dawns.

As part of the UCF Libraries’ enthusiastic support of maintaining an inclusive space in the UCF community, we are offering many workshops and activities through the week. The workshops include a

  • Zine Workshop
  • a presentation on the DIVerse Families Bibliography
  • two fiber art demonstrations
  • henna art
  • an open mic
  • multiple days of film screenings
  • how to start a family search.

The first of our additional activities is just inside the entrance to the library where students can add a sticky note saying what they hope tomorrow brings. The second activity is a map on the 3rd floor where faculty, staff, and students can place a pin in the area where they and their families have lived. The UCF community can also stop by the Curriculum Materials Center library in the Education Complex to view a display on the DIVerse Families Bibliography.

Do you read banned books?

Do you read banned books?

Have you ever read Bridge to Terabithia or The Hunger Games? Then you’ve read a book banned for its religious viewpoint.

What about And Tango Makes Three or I Am Jazz? They were banned for having LGBTQ+ characters.

Banned Books Week is September 23 – 29.

Join UCF Libraries for our Read Stricted: The Dilemmas Surrounding Reading, Censorship, & Challenged Books discussion on Thursday, September 27, 2018 1:30 in LIB-223 about banned books and what books are on the ALAs list of Top 10 Challenged Books in 2017.

See what redacted books you can check out from our display on the John C. Hitt and Curriculum Materials Center Circulation desks.
