UO Libraries Diversity Statement

The University of Oregon Libraries is committed to providing a culturally inclusive environment where diversity of thought and expression is valued and respected. With a more global outlook and a focus on equity in service, we strive to create a powerful learning community, a welcoming space where all Library patrons can access the information necessary to achieve their personal and professional goals.

A number of individual staff, faculty, and administrators in the Libraries have prepared and signed the following open letter to the UO Community as a statement of professional philosophy and practice. Although the letter is not an official policy, we are publishing it on the Libraries’ diversity page as a reflection and affirmation of the UO Libraries’ Diversity Statement and of the UO's institutional values of diversity, equity, and inclusion:
