Diversity & Inclusive Excellence

Libraries' Commitment to Antiracism

The University Libraries supports the University’s statement of action on its Journey Toward Anti-Racism and Racial Equity. We commit to taking active steps towards inclusive excellence by deeply integrating diversity, equity, inclusion and access in all our everyday work. We weave this commitment through the overarching goals set forth in the Libraries Strategic Plan for 2020-2022.
