Many educational institutions are grappling with issues of campus diversity and inclusion. The speakers explore several ways in which universities have enabled students to do intensive research into university history through fellowships or projects in the archives. Presenters discuss how this approach creates a "big tent" in which many interpretations of diversity are welcome and how it positions the archives as an important site of reflection and inquiry.
