Whitworth Library Mission and Vision

Our Mission and Vision:

Sharing the university's mission to provide its diverse student body an education of the mind and the heart, the Whitworth Library serves students, faculty, and staff with information resources and related services that support learning, teaching, scholarship, and intellectual, professional, and spiritual development.

To advance this mission, we strive for excellence in

  • presenting an attitude and atmosphere of user-centered service
  • acquiring, maintaining, and facilitating access to collections and online resources that best support Whitworth's mission and goals
  • providing personnel, services, facilities, and instructional programs that promote effective use of information resources
  • connecting the Whitworth community as needed with the resources of other libraries and information providers.
