Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Rutgers University Libraries, we understand Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) as respecting and fostering perspectives that reflect varying backgrounds, identities, and their intersections. We seek to create and support structures and behaviors that promote equality, fairness, and justice, and to promote an environment of belonging, respect, opportunity, and empowerment.

  1. We promote diversity of personnel, resources, programming, and services to strengthen the university, deepen inquiry, and better serve our communities.
  2. We foster an inclusive environment, both internally and externally, that respects, appreciates, and embraces differences in ideas, perspectives, backgrounds, roles, identities --any of the myriad qualities that reflect the diversity of the human experience.
  3. We strive to offer equitable access to resources and facilities to give agency and power to our diverse communities of users.
