Dear Luther Community,
In April 2021, we began sharing with the community a document that framed our DEI work, naming it as ABIDE. The document’s authors, Matt Skinner, Lois Malcom, Ken Reynhout, and Mark Tranvik produced what later became known as the ABIDE document and this was shared across our community.
We are now preparing to get the ABIDE document approved as an institutional document.
Several departments have already provided feedback and we want to invite you to our final community-wide feedback session. This will be an on-line gathering via Zoom.
We are hoping to present this to the board at the May board meeting. Once the communication process has been concluded, the original authors of the document will amend it and prepare it for presentation to the board. Our aim, ultimately, is to steer a process that will culminate in the board’s review and approval for use of the ABIDE document as an institutional document.
The final ABIDE session is this Friday, January 13, 2023, from 1pm-2pm (facilitators Dr. Ken Reynhout and Dr. Lois Malcolm.)
The Zoom link will be shared via email.
On this “MLK Day,” January 17, and the week following, Luther Library offers a wide range of bibliographic resources on King’s life and legacy, especially these new book titles on MLK.
Note also the New Book List that features two brand new titles by Luther Sem Faculty, Amy Marga and Jennifer Wojciechowski.
