As the heart of the University of Mississippi, the University Libraries celebrate the diversity of our users and employees. We are dedicated to providing an environment where everyone feels valued and respected. We strive to provide a welcoming environment for all members of our communities and to provide service and access to everyone.
In conjunction with UM Guiding Statements (https://inclusion.olemiss.edu/guiding-statements/) and the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (http://diversity.olemiss.edu/), the University Libraries have established the following goals:
- Striving to recruit and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce
