Diversity & InclusionDiversity & Inclusion at the University of Tennessee Libraries
Dear UT Campuses,
The Library Diversity Committee stands in solidarity with our campuses to denounce police brutality and racism. We support your voice and that of many others across our campuses that condemn the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and countless others. This committee stands together to create a culture of anti-racism, understanding, and equality at the University of Tennessee Libraries.
As a committee we choose to build communities of support by facilitating conversation in an inclusive environment at UT Libraries. We strive to provide resources provoking thought and contributing to the dismantling of systemic racism, white supremacy culture, and the police violence that those systems perpetuate.
We reaffirm our commitment to advocate for and to provide dedicated service to our community of users regardless of: age; cognitive style; culture; ability; economic background; education; ethnicity; gender identity; geographic background; immigration and asylum-seeking status; marital status; physical appearance; political affiliation; race; religious beliefs; sexual orientation.
Black Lives Matter. And so do our actions.
