University of Pennsylvania Libraries Diversity Statement
The Penn Libraries seek to support the educational and scholarly endeavors of the Penn
community both locally and wherever students, faculty, and staff may be located around
the world. As such, the Libraries support the mission and goals of the Office of
Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs and the University's
Nondiscrimination Statement. Specifically, the spirit present in the statement's preamble
calling on the community to tap into our diversity, to strengthen ties across all boundaries,
and enrich the intellectual climate to create a more vibrant community. And finally, with
particular emphasis, calling on us to foster and nourish diversity especially among
students, faculty and staff as part of the central core mission of the University.
Penn Libraries seek to create an environment that is welcoming and open to its
constituency offering resources of collections and services that are available in
accordance with universal accessibility standards, delivered without respect to race, color,
sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin,
citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected class, world
view, political perspective, or purpose. In addition, the Penn Libraries seek to maintain a
workplace that fosters respect, and that encourages an environment in which each
employee learns from, and thrives on the differences of his or her colleagues at all levels
of the institution.
