MSU Libraries Diversity Policy
The MSU Libraries are committed to promoting a working and learning environment free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or group affiliation, age, gender, disability, genetic information, marital status, or veteran status. The Libraries are committed to building and maintaining a diverse workforce which is representative of the availability of individuals with requisite skills in each component of the organization: management, faculty, staff, and student assistants. The Libraries are also committed to specific actions in recruiting, training, and mentoring which will contribute to this objective, and to fostering a work environment which will insure tolerance and respect for all. To this end, the MSU Libraries support and comply with MSU’s Diversity Strategic Plan and with the American Library Association’s Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ALA ACRL) Diversity Standards: Cultural Competency for Academic Libraries (2012).
