The SUL Diversity and Inclusion Team presents this guide as a springboard to recognizing, appreciating, and valuing all our diversities, without necessarily agreeing with or endorsing everything contained.
Syracuse University Libraries would like to acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, firekeepers of the Haudenosaunee, the indigenous peoples on whose ancestral lands Syracuse University now stands.
"The Libraries strive to offer inclusive and accessible physical and virtual spaces. We aim to be an equitable and inclusive organization, where all staff are supported, heard and encouraged to share ideas, and where all library users feel welcome, safe and respected as they follow their own academic and creative pursuits."
