Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity

We commit to building a diverse and inclusive Library as a means of promoting health equality and counteracting historic and current systems of oppression.

We Do This Through

  • Acting upon the UCSF PRIDE values and Principles of Community on a daily basis
  • Deepening our understanding of how systematic and historic oppression have led to present inequalities
  • Cultivating welcoming spaces and services to strengthen the UCSF community
  • Supporting the professional success and personal well being of our diverse learners and staff
  • Promoting equal access to information through open access and open science
  • Working to recruit and develop a diverse staff and inclusive work environment 
  • The ongoing efforts of our Diversity and Inclusion Work Group (UCSF access only)
  • Working to create and maintain a community that is free of all forms of sexual harassment

We Are Inspired And Guided By
