The faculty and staff of the Eastern Michigan University Library value diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work and in our communities. We are committed to creating an environment that values and supports the differences in our communities, providing equitable access to services and information, and including all perspectives in decision-making.
We believe that anti-racist action is necessary to confront and combat the long history of white supremacy in the national culture, and the ways in which this has also been reflected on our own campus.
Stating these beliefs and values is an initial step. Expressing them in our work requires a commitment to continuing to learn by engaging in potentially difficult dialogues. We will identify and follow through on specific actions we can take to create a library for our communities and for ourselves that is inclusive and equitable. As part of this ongoing learning process, we will likely make mistakes but commit to learning from them and from feedback from our community.
