The Purdue University Libraries and School of Information Studies will conduct a two-year, multi-stage qualitative research project to investigate leadership development programs designed for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in the library and information science (LIS) community. The project will collect and analyze qualitative data to ascertain perceptions about the efficacy of these experiences particularly for those in the academic and research library and archives sectors. The research will explore best practices for leadership development as a retention and advancement strategy and will inform the designs and implementations of future efforts and for broader professional audiences.
