To all of our students, we are glad you are here and part of our community. 

Be diverse Be inclusive Be a welcoming safe space for everyoneNo matter where you come from, no matter whom you love, no matter what you believe or what you doubt, no matter what you do to live, thrive, or survive, you are welcome at the University Libraries. This is a place for you to learn and explore. We are here to support you at every stage of your academic career, and we are committed to providing services and spaces that foster a welcoming, inclusive environment.
We invite you to seek knowledge openly, engage in respectful conversation and participate in the exchange of ideas. Respect for one another starts with speaking up when you hear bias or prejudice. We all have the power to interrupt, to question, to educate, and to support. One person’s voice is a powerful start. Many voices united create positive change.

Together, we enrich our community and make our common pursuit of knowledge, discovery, and understanding possible.
