Our mission and vision
In support of the University mission to advance teaching, research, student learning, and community engagement, the University Libraries embrace intellectual inquiry and innovation, nurture the production of new knowledge, and foster excellence in education through scholarly resources, active learning environments, cutting-edge technology, and exceptional service.
We focus on building and sustaining a healthy organizational culture, providing inclusive services to our campus community and collaborating with campus partners in DEI efforts. We are committed to:
- Diversity: Advocating for the importance and positive impact of diversity in the Libraries staff, collections, exhibits, services and spaces.
- Equity: Meeting people where they are and working toward equitable policies and practices of fairness, justice, equal access, and equal opportunity for all people.
- Inclusion: Helping lead the Libraries to a place where differences are welcome, different perspectives are respectfully heard and where every individual is valued and feels a sense of belonging.
