Annie Bélanger

Gvsu
Dean Of University Libraries
Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan Area
I'm a University Libraries Dean who is committed to the ideals of a Liberal Education, with a demonstrated history of focusing on student experience, accessibility, inclusion and leadership growth for all colleagues.

Background in project management, accessibility work, collection lifecycle management, service development, research infrastructure, fiscal management, space planning and development, inclusive organizational development, and leadership development. Develops strengths-based approaches, anchored in Appreciative Inquiry and an ethics of care, to enable participatory management and co-creation in the workplace through high-empathy and engaged leadership.

Experienced in developing, leading, and facilitating strategic planning and implementation, development of shared values and culture engagement agreements, leadership development, change management skills development, human-centered management skills, accessible customer service, and organizational evolution.

Committed to identifying and implementing systems-level changes to reduce or eliminate barriers to library access and use.

Personal vision:
Libraries are critical in a democratic society. They are critical in working towards a socially just world. They are the 3rd place with a moral imperative to support knowledge creation & provide a platform to amplify underrepresented voices. In Higher Ed, Libraries are partners to help students find calling. The Libraries are the places where it is quiet enough to hear yourself become who you will be and loud enough to know you are not alone in that journey.
