Library Mission


The Library provides information resources, services, and facilities that support the academic programs and meet the learning, teaching, research, and other informational needs of the University. 

The Library is learning and learner-centered. 

The focus is on collection development, service, and the promotion of information literacy.


The underlying intent of the library mission is to support the mission of the University.. In support of the globalization of the University, the Library has developed special services for distance learners including personalized research support. In offering such assistance, the intent is not to do the research for students but rather to guide them toward developing the information literacy skills that will enable them to do their own research for their academic assignments and papers and, after graduation, for lifelong learning.

University Mission

To build Holy Spirit-empowered leaders through whole person education to impact the world with God’s healing.
