The XULA Archives & Special Collections is excited to announce that we have recently been selected as a member institution of the ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership.

In the wake of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor murders, and in the spirit of protest that followed, the ArchivesSpace community began a conversation about what it could do to promote diversity and inclusion while combating systemic racism in the archives field. That continuing conversation has led to a series of initiatives that will be undertaken in the coming years, including the ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership. The ArchivesSpace Diversity Partnership is a new three-year program that offers support for implementing the ArchivesSpace application to institutions that are themselves or primarily serve communities underrepresented in the ArchivesSpace community. This program will officially launch a three-year term with a small cohort of institutions on July 1, 2021 and conclude on June 30, 2024.

As a selected member of this cohort, the XULA Archives & Special Collections will receive an ArchivesSpace membership, ArchivesSpace hosting and technical support from a Registered Service Provider, Specialized Training, and Ongoing User Support to continue to better serve our Archival Collection, the Xavier Community, and the Mission of the University.
