"I believe that we enact our values through the decisions we make and the actions we take. The value of access, especially access to higher education and access to a public research library’s resources, motivates and energizes me as a librarian and as a library leader. I’m also committed to working toward creating the most inclusive and diverse community possible, especially to bolster open and equitable access to library resources and spaces."

 

 

 

 

 

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging (DEIAB)

The University Libraries is committed to disrupting racism, hate and bias whenever and wherever we encounter it and to creating the most inclusive and diverse community that we possibly can. We reject the actions and messages of racism and embrace the message of anti-racism.

While we are a place for everyone, we will not allow acts of intolerance and hate to diminish the rights and safety of others who visit our spaces and use our resources and services. It is time for us to do more in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
