Diversity and Affirmative Action Policies

The University Library is committed to building and maintaining a diverse workforce which is representative of the availability of individuals with requisite skills in each component of the organization: management, faculty, staff, and student assistants. The library is committed to specific actions in recruitment, training, and mentoring which will contribute to this objective, and to fostering a work environment which will insure tolerance and respect for all. In such an environment, characteristics relating to race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, gender, marital status, veteran status, or political views are not considered in any recruitment, appointment, or advancement decisions; physical or mental limitations are taken into account only insofar as they are relevant to the performance of the essential job functions.
