Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA)

The University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to creating a community that is inclusive, open, and equitable for all. As an organization, we lead with trust, respect, and integrity. We embrace the contributions of every individual while also celebrating our collective achievements. The University’s founding principles—Lux, Libertas—guide our efforts to build bridges and to lead change.
