Welcome to the Educational Resource Center

From theory to practice

Vision Statement

From theory to practice...

As an academic library, the Educational Resources Center seeks to provide a dynamic diverse environment within which one can discover, experiment, and develop their own transformative educational journey.

Within our services, we aim to engage in meaningful conversations and interactions that enhance the human condition, expand the human imagination and build social contexts that promote justice, equality, and a sense of community. 

Through our collection, we have a responsibility to provide a spectrum of inclusive intellectual content that challenges one to formulate transformative thought in support of academic critical inquiry and intellectual freedom.

Our space provides an intentional means to spark creativity, collaboration, and innovation.

The ERC is committed to actively ensuring these ideals are reflected in our services, collections, & spaces.
