  • Diversity Statement

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of David Glenn Hunt Memorial Library. They are integral to our mission of providing access to information and resources that support all college community members' academic and personal success. We are committed to creating and maintaining a welcoming and inclusive environment that respects the diversity of our users, including their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, ability, and socioeconomic status.

    A diverse and inclusive library is essential to academic excellence, and we strive to ensure that our collections, services, and programs reflect the diversity of our community. We actively promote diversity and equity in all aspects of our work, including:

    • Acquiring and preserving materials that represent diverse perspectives and experiences
    • Providing equitable access to library resources and services
    • Creating and offering programming that promotes understanding and appreciation of diversity
    • Recruiting and retaining a diverse staff that reflects the communities we serve
    • Providing ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion training for our staff

    Creating a genuinely inclusive library requires ongoing effort and commitment, and we continually assess and improve our policies and practices to ensure that we meet our diverse community's needs.
