Welcome to the EDIB - Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging website for York University Libraries.
Equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging are part of the core values of York University. These values will shape the development of the University Equity Plan & Framework and have been expressed in the six priorities of the University Academic Plan 2020-2025 that focus on the key dimension of “coming together to make positive change for our students, our campuses and our local and global communities.”
York University Libraries (YUL) has embarked on a multi-year strategy to evaluate all of our services and spaces (virtual and physical) from an anti-racism lens and commit ourselves actively to anti-racist, anti-oppression and inclusive practices. The YUL EDIB Team has been established to formulate a roadmap and strategy informed by the University’s EDI plan and framework for proactively building people, processes and structures committed to EDIB embedded in all aspects of YUL’s work. The EDIB Team is sponsored and established by the Dean of Libraries.
