STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

Our Library at UC Santa Cruz strives to cultivate a welcoming environment where social and cultural differences are understood, respected, and affirmed. We celebrate the spectrum of human experiences and identities. 

As a library, we are identifying and eliminating barriers that stand in the way of equity and inclusion. We are also working to better understand our role in the systemic oppression and racism present in our institutions. 

Our first step has been to develop a statement we can stand behind. Another step is the formation of a library-wide team to address and prioritize concerns and policy recommendations around equity, diversity, and inclusion.

As we continue to engage in this effort, we will update this space. Comments or questions can be addressed to edi@library.ucsc.edu.
