Did you know that there are over 74 books and movies available to faculty and staff to check out from our traveling diversity and inclusion library? Themes range from age, community disability, ethnicity, family, gender, health, nationality/regionality, politics, religion, race, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation.

If you have any questions or recommendations for the traveling library, please contact

Diversity across the Curriculum

Have you already checked out something from the traveling library? We would love to hear from you and add your thoughts to the Diversity across the Curriculum canvas page.

Rather than a scholarly synopsis, reflect on how the book or movie influenced you personally and/or professionally. Email or send a word document attachment to Evan Prost at proste@health.missouri.edu

Hear what happens when a program brings together kids from two schools. One school is public and in the country’s poorest congressional district. The other is private and costs $43,000/year. They are three miles apart. The hope is that kids connect, but some of the public school kids just cannot get over the divide. To listen, click HERE.
