Diversity Program – OHIO University Libraries


Recognizing that all people have individual differences and are the product of one or more cultures and ethnic backgrounds, Ohio University Libraries is committed to cultivating an environment where differences are valued and respected. The Libraries strive to provide an inclusive environment for all individuals regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, background, gender, and disability and will actively promote and support diversity among our administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

We seek to do the following:

  • Address the information needs of all library patrons, taking individual needs into account;
  • Build collections representing diverse viewpoints and opinions and expressions, regardless of format;
  • Produce culturally stimulating programs and services, through our Culture Showcase series, that enhance the academic experience of the University community;
  • Improve the diversity of the Libraries staff.
