Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Student Success Librarian - Cal Poly State Univ.
Location: USA - CA - San Luis Obispo
The Robert E. Kennedy Library at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California, seeks a motivated, creative, collaborative, user-focused professional to join us in the tenure-track faculty position of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Student Success Librarian. We are looking for someone who will bring creativity and passion to developing and delivering outreach, instruction and programming designed to engage our under-represented student populations in support of Kennedy Library’s DEI Action Plan, Cal Poly Student Diversity and Belonging, and related campus partners.
In support of this new position, Kennedy Library is adopting the highly successful cluster-hire approach used by the Cal Poly colleges for our current recruitments. This is one element of a multifaceted strategy for intentional increase in expertise related to diversity and equity across the university, and part of a comprehensive effort to support inclusion. This approach has been chosen as an intervention because it will both enhance inclusive library service knowledge and practices among new hires and provide a supportive community for those invested in DEI-related work. It will be the library’s organizational responsibility to ensure that the cluster has opportunities to build community with other DEI-related cluster hires across the university and each other. Enhancing our existing processes for onboarding, mentoring, and balance of research and service will contribute substantially to the cluster’s experience and success.
Salary commensurate with education and experience of the individual selected. Anticipated hiring range: $78,000 - $85,000 per year.
