Policies

Equal Opportunity Policy

The Uni Project does not discriminate against any applicant or employee with regard to hiring, retention, promotion, benefits or compensation because of race, national origin, ethnicity, citizenship, gender, age, marital status, creed, sexual orientation, disability, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Uni Project is also committed to the promotion of diversity in all of its programs.

Book Donation Policy

We encourage and appreciate donations of books for the Uni Collection, as well as monetary contributions towards the purchase of books. Book donations are accepted with the understanding that books will be added to the Uni Collection only if deemed appropriate and needed as determined by Uni Librarians. The Uni Project is the operating name (DBA) of Street Lab, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donated books become the property of The Uni Project and will be used where and how the Uni Librarians see fit.

Our priority is to make books in the Uni Collection available for public browsing. At any time, if a book can not be offered effectively to the public in the Uni Collection, Uni Librarians may dispose of it as they see fit, including but not limited to the following options: 1) donation to another nonprofit or library that can offer the book to the public, 2) sale of the book in a charitable book sale, with proceeds used to purchase new books for the Uni Collection.

All donors will also be acknowledged on the Uni’s website. We cannot appraise the value of donated materials, but we can provide an acknowledgment. Donors should understand that over time, donated books will become well-worn from use by the public and may be damaged or lost.
