The University Libraries now offers a snack pantry for our student workers in an attempt to help combat food insecurity on campus. This pantry was created to be a resource to our student workers with an understanding that there are many challenges students face and hunger should not be one of them. This pantry is a great addition to the support the University Libraries provides for our students as their success is always our mission.
Thank you to the faculty and staff that saw the need and provided a thoughtful and befitting solution!
