Diversity & Inclusion

Vision

University Libraries will provide inclusive and equitable access to resources, services, programs and spaces which promote a greater awareness of support for and promotion of a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, values, perspectives, learning experiences, and needs.

Mission

University Libraries support and foster a respectful, supportive, and inclusive educational and social learning environment and experiences for patrons and library personnel through services, collections, teaching, learning, and technology.

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The University Libraries D&I Committee provides leadership in the Libraries on issues related to diversity and the provision of high-quality library services to individuals from diverse backgrounds. It offers staff development opportunities to increase their understanding of diversity and reaches out to the external community to promote the library and campus as a shared living and learning environment conducive to respect, acceptance, mutual understanding, and global awareness.
