Library Mission and Vision

The Ringling College Library’s mission is to advance learning and teaching, in and beyond the studio and classroom, consistent with Ringling College’s scholar practitioner philosophy. Our vision is to be a learner-centered, digital and physical destination of intellectual, social, collaborative and creative engagement. We aim to be a dynamic interface for nurturing inquiry, imagination, and inspiration.

Our goals are to:

  • Bring together and expand library, technology, and academic support resources in support of student success.
  • Provide programming and facilities for research, instruction, independent and informal learning, group work, consultation, collaboration, and reflection.
  • Partner with faculty and other creative professionals in developing learning opportunities to achieve student competencies and faculty development.
