Welcome & Mission

Welcome Statement

The Styberg Library welcomes and serves all persons, respecting the many diverse identities that they bring with them, including, but not limited to, ability, age, class, gender identity/expression, national origin, sexual orientation, race, and religion.

The Library is committed to serving everyone professionally, hospitably, and equitably as we work to fulfill the mission and goals of the Library and Seminary. The Library strives to provide a positive, encouraging environment that makes everyone feel welcome and therefore better able to pursue their academic studies.
