Diversity, Inclusion & Equity at Steenbock

Statement of Values

The UW–Madison Libraries will continue to look for ways to eliminate undue hardship for the patrons who use our collections, services, and facilities. We will continue to work to ensure we provide welcoming and inclusive surroundings for all who wish to take advantage of our spaces and services. Actions meant to hurt, alienate, or divide this community will not be tolerated.” 

General Library System Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity, Inclusion & Equity at the Science and Engineering Libraries (DIESEL)

DIESEL guides and coordinates efforts within the Science and Engineering Libraries to promote diversity and inclusion within the libraries and on campus. What we're working on: create library spaces where everyone is welcome; train staff to address and report incidents of bias, microaggressions, and hate; promote and support the development of diverse collections; and communicate our work to patrons.
