The NDSU Faculty Research Series (FRS) on Engaged Citizenship and Inclusion showcases the scholarly research of NDSU faculty who have published on matters of social responsibility, equality, inclusion, and/or open-minded, ethical decision-making and action as related to topics including race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, ability, religion, or issues facing the LGBTQ+ community.  

The Libraries’ Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee is pleased to be partnering with FRS by developing open access guides for each presentation to related research, data, and contextual information. When possible, a link will be provided to the researcher’s article. These guides help increase the visibility of NDSU faculty research by making it easily findable for anyone with an internet connection.

For the Libraries, linking primarily to open access content in these guides is an issue of equity and inclusion for researchers, clinicians, organizations, and the general public across our state who lack access to high cost databases and collections. Providing as much access as we can is one way NDSU Libraries fulfill their land-grant mission.

Materials relating to this series can be found in the NDSU Repository
