Librarian’s Passion for Diversity
What students often picture as a study spot or place to gather information, May Morris University Librarian Trevor A. Dawes views as much more.
After working in a library as an undergraduate, Dawes was sure that librarianship was the path for him. He found fulfillment in helping visitors and later realized that his passion for diversity, equity and inclusion connected seamlessly with his newfound career.
“When you see that spark in someone’s eye when they discover or create something, and you know that you were a part of that discovery or creation or that insight, it really gives me a sense of gratification knowing that either I, personally, or the library, was able to provide some assistance to help that person succeed,” Dawes said.
