In addition to the values expressed in the RFP (commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and to collaborative processes), we value consultants who appreciate the roles cultural heritage organizations like libraries and archives play in a democratic society and in particular in the lives of college students, faculty, and researchers.
A style that relies on reflective practices, collaborative input on decisions, that relies on clear processes matches our current cultural landscape.
Yes, climate surveys, strategic plans, and other background context setting materials will be provided. Some content, such as Assessment, Impact Report, Strategic Plan, etc. is found linked off of the OSU Libraries Administration page.
