We value progress and achievement in the Goucher community, and pledge to do all that we can to help our students, faculty, and staff succeed. We celebrate success as a way to recognize quality work and to showcase and demonstrate the highest levels to which we all aspire.
We value partnerships with faculty, students, and staff across campus to enhance the College’s effectiveness. We continually strive to innovate and build new models of service to best meet the needs of our users.
We are committed to the development and preservation of a collection in all formats that both supports the curriculum and expands its boundaries. We are intent stewards of the college’s history.
Quest for Knowledge
We value the quest for human knowledge in all its forms. We value the teaching and learning process by which knowledge is disseminated and acquired, and we value the creative process required to produce new thought.
Diversity and Inclusion
We value and appreciate differences: of opinion, perspective, culture, race, socioeconomic status, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, and physical ability.
Love of Learning
We are intellectually curious and expect to continue to learn, grow, and develop throughout our lives. We do this by reading, through engagement in professional development, by learning from each other, and through access to cultural activities. We seek to instill the appreciation for lifelong learning in all of our library users.
