Our Mission

The Mission of St. Augustine College Library is to provide essential and high-quality instructional support materials, facilities, and services to the students, faculty, and staff of St. Augustine across all programs. Developing in our community members the informational literacy skills necessary to achieve their educational goals, to acquire and utilize information, and to empower them to become successful lifelong learners. The library supports an environment of free and critical thought to realize the goals of a bilingual, metropolitan, and multicultural college.

 

With this mission the library assists St. Augustine College in fulfilling its mission, by directly supporting the accessibility of education to a diverse student population, while maintaining a focus on those of Hispanic descent; to strengthen ethnic identity; to reinforce cultural interaction; and to build a bridge to fill cultural, educational, and socioeconomic gaps.
